Another arrival and a bit more on 37

A visit to Nest 3 which has the unstreamed nestcam was productive today – the breeding female has returned safely.

She may have arrived no earlier than today because the nest looks the same as on previous checks. She didn’t do any ‘nestoration’ but sat on the edge looking around and chipping occasionally before flying away.

So we now have one established pair, one male – 37 on Nest 2 – and one female on their nests. What did 37 do today?

37 scraped the nest cup a couple of times.

But for the rest of the day he was scarce. It was surprising that he didn’t show up at Nest 3 during the monitoring session given that the female is back, but plenty of time…

We’re thrilled to have four of our breeding ospreys back safely and hope to see the rest soon.

    Hi Joanna,

    Thanks for the great news!

    I’m hoping all is well with UV and wondering if he has begun his migration yet?

      There’ll be a post about UV over the weekend, Chris. If he’d begun his migration there’d have been a flash report!

    Is this the same non ringed female that started breeding at the nest 2014.
