Yes, yes, yes!!!

Thanks to Amy’s diligent monitoring at Kielder Castle Cafe, we can now be sure that there is at least one chick on Nest 1. Well done YA and new partner!

More fish have gone in today, feeding has been observed on the nest, YA has inspected…. Great news.

Here are images of key sightings.

    Now let’s hope the forecast rain is not as bad as predicted for the next 2 days. Sally

      Yes, Sally, after 2 years in a row of losing 2 chicks before fledging from Nest 1 – albeit not with this year’s pair of ospreys – we long for a better outcome this time.

        Met. office forecast for tomorrow and Saturday for Kielder is not looking good – 80% chance of heavy showers all day on Saturday until 19:00! I hope you have some good waterproof bags for the telescopes ready. The poor birds will just have to sit it out. Sally

      You will be glad to hear Mary that a donation from New Zealand has arrived in the Northumberland Wildlife Trust’s bank account and been allocated to the project budget! Thanks again for your kind donation. Sally
