Peaceful day at Kielder

After the egg-citement late in the afternoon on Monday, Tuesday was more humdrum. Mrs YA spent the greater amount of time on the eggs. YA flew down from a tree just before 10.30 when she mantled over the eggs; no obvious threat could be seen.

It was a lovely warm day and Mrs YA dozed during the afternoon. YA was away – when he returned it was with a large rainbow trout! That got Mrs YA up, and she flew off with it.

YA took over for the late afternoon shift. Interestingly no mating was seen on the nest, although there wasn’t 100% observation in the middle of the day. Is she going to stick at two eggs? We hope not!
