What a star!

Yellow 37 spent the first afternoon home on his nest working hard, after feeding up on the fish he first brought with him. It was only about a third the original size the last time he popped down with it. Once that was out of the way it was on with re-building his nest and scraping out a nest cup. He landed with a stick about once a minute towards the end of live streaming. Unfortunately he twice managed to kick one off the back of the nest, such was his enthusiasm to get on with his work! He had hollowed out quite a cup too. He’s a great role model to other male ospreys.

Here is a link to a video of the first time he was seen, bar a few seconds before recording began.

And here are some screenshots of 37 hard at work.
