EJ tantalised us yesterday with a long, long stay in the Love Tree, only just visible preening in the greenery.
But later she landed on the nest, in response to an unseen skydancer - interpreted by some as her own alarm calls as she flew in pursuit, but those "some" were outvoted, and quite happy to be so.
GJ was not seen all day.
It's a much calmer night tonight.

My parting shot, SYAL :)
(Network probs fixed after yet another Windows Update, which must have been clogging everything up while is got itself ready in the background.)

Facebook post from Aviemore.
After the windy day yesterday all seems Good, the wind has now changed direction for the first morning in weeks, so perfect for the new hide, 4 ospreys fished so far and it's only 5.40am including what looked like the monster diving AU6.
Thanks for starting us off Scylla. Sleep well and return to us with a working IT system, at last! I hope Moffers troubles are also resolved soon.
Thanks for the info from Aviemore Lochan, Mike. 'Monster diving' must be interesting to watch! Blue AU6(12)m has been around for a few years now. (First?) reported back in 2015. Hatched near Conon Bridge, on 10 May 2015 AO reported, "Blue AU6 is back and hitting the water and 100 miles an hour". His ring is upside down. Bill Doherty has taken some superb photos of him

Roaming cam is on the Love Tree again, and guess who's sitting there. It's certainly as osprey, and I can only 'assume' it is EJ! Her dark tail is evident and occasional glimpses of a while head. She could be eating a fish - the white patch appears to be bobbing up and down, and her tail moves as well. All guess of course! The wind has dropped from y'day, the intruding tree top isn't blowing across the cam today!
