Amy from Kielder Castle Cafe has captured some great images over the last couple of days. This post will summarise Wednesday’s highlights but watch out for another about Thursday later on.
Wednesday was fairly uneventful until the afternoon. An osprey was in a tree or on the nest (always Blue 6H in the latter case) for some of the time. Shortly after 15.00 Mrs YA was seen in a tree – wonderful, because we hadn’t identified her during Osprey Watch over the weekend and we wondered if she had departed on migration already.
At about 15.30 Blue 6H did some nest work, including re-arranging a large piece of moss. Maybe Mrs YA decided to conduct a close inspection, because she landed on the nest edge around 16.00. Blue 6H shouted at her for a bit and off she went. Nice to be appreciated!
At 16.40 Blue 6H got what s/he wanted – a fish, and a large one at that. Blue 6H showed off her/his strength by flying off with it after eating the head! It didn’t take long for a return and tea on the nest.
The video stream is quite jerky but here are some images instead.
