Nests 2 and 3 update

On Nest 2, 37 and EB had settled well by 7 April. The first fish seen to be delivered by 37 was on the afternoon of 6 April.

Unfortunately, for the last two days the nestcam hasn’t streamed. Forestry Commission Radio and Electronics Branch staff will be at Kielder on Thursday to try and resolve various problems, including this one.

We do know where EB was this afternoon, though.

EB paid a brief visit to Nest 3, but another osprey is leaving more of a mark.

The condensation on the camera lens doesn’t help, but this osprey doesn’t look like either of the residents from the head markings.
