YA wasn’t recorded on his nest yesterday after the first visit. But today he was on and off all morning, moving moss, scraping out the nest cup and bringing twigs and bark to build up the edge. And having a rest in between!
Some of the action. Press HD for best quality on all videos and apologies for the fogging.
But waiting is boring and working is tiring.
After more work this afternoon YA brought a fish to the nest but with no female awaiting a gift he is tucking in on the perch as this is written, 16.00.
YA returned on the same date as last year and Mrs YA arrived later that day. Historically 37 is usually back first. Last year he landed on his nest on 24 March which was the earliest date recorded for him. We hope he and the other Kielder Ospreys are all safely winging their way home.
Some of the nestcams are streaming live to Kielder Castle Cafe. To see the action as it happens over a cuppa or more visit during opening hours 11.00 to 16.00 until April, then 09.30 to 17.00.
