Hello again, Blue YU!

Thankfully the weather is improving at Kielder. On Nest 2 White EB bore the brunt of the snow on Friday. She didn’t leave the eggs even though 37 landed just after 16.00 yesterday ready to relieve her. But half an hour later she took advantage of another offer after the rain which followed snow had ceased.

Nest 1 was covered in deep snow yesterday but that didn’t deter one young osprey.

Blue YU was last seen on a nestcam on 18 April just two days after her sibling Blue YS. She is a three year old from Perthshire. Unfortunately neither Blue 39 nor Blue 2H were around for the ten minutes she stayed.

Today YA made an early visit to Nest 1. Much less snow!

Back to Nest 2 where not much later 37 brought a large fish for White EB. She was away eating for an hour!
