Yesterday was a ‘CN2 free’ day on Nest 2. 37 brought two fish for Y6 within 90 minutes.
Y6 ate on the nest for nearly an hour then flew away with the remains.
37 left with the trout after a few minutes of waiting for Y6. She arrived a bit later to relieve 37 of his catch as he landed.
Y6 left immediately and there was no further activity on the nest.
Today when the stream started Y6 was standing on the nest edge. It wasn’t long before CN2 emerged from the mist.
CN2 tried to dislodge Y6 but the plucky juvenile held firm.
Y6 stayed on the nest for another 20 minutes without incident, then there was an empty nest until 11.26 when CN2 landed. He was on and off for about an hour. He returned with a stick at 12.25 followed by Y6. Press HD for best quality.
CN2 was the first of the pair to return to the nest for a short time but since before 13.00 only Y6 has been seen. She preened, looking relaxed, for over an hour.
Over on Nest 1A Y1 and Y3 haven’t been seen since yesterday morning.
This morning YA waited in vain for a juvenile.
Perhaps the Nest 1A juveniles will appear again but the good weather conditions yesterday were ideal for migration as the many records on birding websites confirm.
