On arrival we were unable to see nest due to light rain and misty conditions. Telescopes were assembled and then covered; thank goodness for the live feed under cover and indoors!
Visitors were delighted to see both male and female birds arrive and leave the nest but more importantly to have a great view of the three healthy chicks. The adverse weather continued up to 1.30pm when at last the covers were removed from the scopes and the nest became visible.
Midges were in abundance with most visitors being eaten alive but this still did not dampen their excitement at viewing the OSPREYS!
No osprey fly pasts were seen through the day but in total we had 128 happy visitors.
Don, Margaret & Christine
The midges even made it inside Kielder Castle Cafe in ones and twos! YA seemed to have Father’s Day off because only one fish was delivered before 17.00. Here he is taking it away for a snack himself.
Nest 2 update
Like his brother, 37 also had a quiet day with only one fish delivery observed.
37 did other work too, bringing in a couple of large sticks which he added to the left side of the nest.
