14.59, thunk, YA lands on Nest !!!

At 14.59 an osprey landed on Nest 1, back to the camera. An anxious wait until he turned a bit and then flew up to the newly constructed lakeside edge – YES, White YA is home.

He has stayed on the nest edge looking towards the water since then, 30 minutes. He looks wonderful.

    Great news – just in time for my return to Kielder for the season! Was he the osprey spotted in Durham yesterday then? Sally

      Possibly, Sally, although he took his time arriving home if he was so near last night. But Blagdon in 2013 suggests he doesn’t necessarily race!
