EB’s first day home

EB stayed on her nest until lunchtime today, when the weather conditions worsened. She scanned the horizon from time to time.

EB soon looked as though she would rather be in sunny Senegal, her wintering grounds.

Nevertheless, she indulged in a bit of nest cup scraping, in preparation for eggs.

At 13.12, she decided she’d move to a more sheltered spot as the rain and wind started to increase their intensity.

Conditions became quite wild by 17.00, and the nestcam streams have dropped out. Hopefully, they will reboot tomorrow morning.

The ‘Osprey’ ferry was out on the reservoir at lunchtime today. The passengers were treated to the sight of an osprey hunting. From the size, it appeared female. But EB was on Nest 2 at the time. Was it an osprey on passage? Or could it be the Nest 3 female? Weather permitting, that site will be checked tomorrow.

  1. We were on the ‘Osprey’ boat on Wednesday 4th and saw the osprey flying. I have a photo – is there any way to upload this?
