Who is where?

We haven’t seen VS from Nest 2 since late afternoon on 30 August when she and VM were both waiting for a fish. When 37 complied with their wishes VS won the ‘tug of fish’ and flew off with the trout. This is one of the last screen captures of her on the nest.

VM and 37 are still at Nest 2. Appearances are quite rare other than when a fish is involved.

At the time of writing (12.45 BST) we haven’t seen a fish delivery but VM had a preening session in the sun.

VP and YA are still at Nest 1 – VP is standing on the nest edge right now!

She received a fish from YA late yesterday afternoon and another this morning.

She’s had two goes at the fish this morning with YA removing it for his own brunch in between.

Winds are light from the north so conditions for migration are still good.

Meanwhile further south the data for VY came in early today. She roosted in trees by  farmland NE from Loughborough, between the villages of Rempstone and Wymeswold.

She had just set off when the data downloaded; by the time we hear from her tomorrow she could be in France. Safe journey, VY.
