Hello, mum!

Yesterday UV paid his second visit of the week to Kielder. And landed on Nest 1A! Here he comes…

But his mother treated him like any other intruder – offspring aren’t recognised after their adult feathers have replaced the juvenile plumage.

    Fantastic, Joanna. I’ve waited for this moment ever since he crossed the channel. So pleased for you and thank you for the excellent footage, UV was determined to land on that nest irrespective of his mother’s mantling and calling. He’s looking good! :)

    What a fantastic video. We have been waiting for such an event for so many years. It really adds to osprey history.
