Intruders on the new platform

Yesterday’s post promised details of W6’s last few days on the platform after the unringed female migrated, and information about intruders. In a sense, the two are intertwined, as W6 enjoyed the company of Mrs YA from Nest 1A for … Continue reading

Highs and lows

The end of the breeding season can have stutters. It may seem the ospreys have migrated, but then one returns – like YA after a 10 day absence. The end is in stark contrast to the beginning of the season … Continue reading

Regular readers will recall that Nest 1A‘s YA turned up on 15 September, complete with a fresh rainbow trout. He hadn’t been seen by any nestcams since 5 September, so was possibly away from the area. He was on his … Continue reading

Going, going… are all the ospreys gone?

Bamburgh hatched 100 days ago today. She is still with us – her 2016 sister Y6 left 105 days after hatching, so the Nest 2 record isn’t at risk just yet. Even if Bamburgh had felt the urge to migrate … 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

Hanging around – including intruders!

The 29 August post about the streamed nests mentioned Mrs 69 from Nest 4 not having been seen by 17.00. Cue her arrival not much later. Since then, she hadn’t been on the nestcam by the time of writing (17.00). … Continue reading
