Over the last couple of days the ospreys on Nests 1A and 2 have been diligent in their work on their nests.
The nest cups are getting quite deep.
On Nest 1A YA is building up the front, reducing even further the chances of spotting eggs via the nestcam! Press HD for best quality.
Last year was the first time EB had bred at Kielder. She and 37 had three chicks who all fledged successfully. Eggs were a welcome sight as she mostly rebuffed 37’s attempts to mate. She is behaving similarly this year.
But when she does start to raise her tail often 37 isn’t in the right position.
Elsewhere the Nest 3 male was probably not back by yesterday afternoon nor were either of the Nest 4 pair by the end of nestcam streaming today. Although 37 and EB took advantage of their absence to spend a few minutes there yesterday.
