After arriving home just before 15.00 YA spent his first half hour perched on the new nest edge facing the lake. He then popped down onto the nest to tackle an untidy stick.
He posed for a moment in the centre of the nest.
Then he took the stick to the far side and out of sight! He perched on the edge out of nestcam shot for a while, but the ‘long shot’ camera picked him up.
He left after 20 minutes or so for a favourite tree before a brief sky dance then off towards the water. The last views of him before Kielder Castle Cafe closed were of his return to a favourite spot, the top of the nestcam pole.
