The nestcams are still recording, but lately corvids and kestrels have been the main visitors. There was a surprise this afternoon. YA was mantling as he landed – possibly at corvids – but he soon began to eat. And eat! … Continue reading

Osprey update – and some different species

Bamburgh is still at Nest 2, with her 2nd fish of the day. She still had a remnant of the first offering from 37 when he brought the 2nd. This is Bamburgh about an hour before fish 2 arrived. Much … Continue reading

Bamburgh is still at Nest 2, Blackaburn has probably left Nest 3

Yesterday’s post commented that Bamburgh may not have migrated, given her long absences from Nest 2. That has proved true, with a few brief landings this morning, and early evening presence eating a fish. No ospreys have been seen on … Continue reading

Departures update

It was unlikely any of the Kielder youngsters would begin their migration yesterday. Despite light tailwinds, it was a wet day with poor visibility for the most part. There were no fish deliveries between 08.00 and around 18.00 on the … Continue reading

Fish dominate

The remaining juveniles are ever hungry. Mostly, the males – and in Nest 4’s case, Mrs 69 too – have been providing ample supplies. During the 11 hours of streaming on 27 August, YA delivered 4 trout to Nest 1A. … Continue reading

Intruders of the day

Intruding ospreys have landed on Nest 2 and Nest 1A today. In chronological order… FR1 is a 2015 male from Perthshire. He visited Kielder in 2017, and was the first ‘intruder arrival’ of this season. He hasn’t been on a … Continue reading

Comings and goings – and coming back!

In yesterday’s post about Y1 landing on Nest 2, the fact that EB hadn’t been seen on the nestcam since 20 August was mentioned. And that she was ‘probably’ on her way to Somone. That slight caveat proved necessary. The … Continue reading
