Blue 69 is home

Soon after the nestcams started streaming today Blue 69, the Nest 4 male, brought a headless trout to the nest for the female.

The female took the fish and left Blue 69 to look after the nest.

But it wasn’t long before he posed on the pole.

The four nests have their usual occupants now, the first milestone for 2017 and always a relief. To check arrival dates the timeline for 2017 can be found here.

    House/Bingo !!!! – Congratulations on a full return.
    It is news like this that rewards all the hard work you all have done since the project started.
    Any room for a fifth nest this year.

      There are a couple of possibilities, Keith. We are rather low on intrusions this year so far though, only one unringed female, so we need some visitors!
