37 was on his nest when the nestcam stream began. He did a bit of housekeeping and nest cup scraping then flew off at 09.39.
At 09.56 an unringed female arrived; despite moisture beads obscuring the view the markings were consistent with Mrs 37.
She left after 4 minutes but returned a little later for another short perch on the nest. As with the other three ospreys from Nests 1 and 2 this is Mrs 37’s earliest return.
At the time of writing the pair haven’t re-united yet, or at least not on the nest. 37 is looking around hopefully though!
Neither YA nor Mrs YA have been seen on Nest 1 today. At both sites there is less presence on the nest than normal. It is very chilly and fishing must be tough. The early returns may not lead to early eggs!
