Yesterday we saw the "proud lady osprey" perched majestically on the Love Tree branch after her fish. (pic and comment by Limpy)
She spent some time nestorizing, and brought in a lovely licheny branch. (birdsong)
It is pleasant to watch EJ comfortably whiling away her days, not having to deal with loud demanding chicks this year, until the south calls her back.
Movie continuing from last vid, up until EJ flies off on nestcam:
I have to take a chore/meal-break now. Will do the subsequent comings 'n goings later.
Editing in just a few snaps:
=======New DU for Sunday 15 July >>>>>=======
Wow, in scylla's snaps GJ looks like he had quite a meal recently! What a flurry of activity later in the day!
Not looked in for a while but see there has been some action going on.
Thank you Scylla and others for reporting and the excellent videos and snaps. Much appreciated.
Aww thank you, Mary :-*
It's nearly nightcam but I can't keep my eyes open a minute longer.
CC, please don't worry about a new DU if you are pressed, anybody can start the day off in the morning and it doesn't have to be elaborate.
A lovely days coverage all, thanks. I am off to beddie bies as I have a very important visit in the morning, to meet some very important people!!
Thank You Scylla for your excellent coverage of today’s events, videos are fab.
EJ did make me smile, holding on to her fish throughout the intrusions. What a legend she is.
scylla said:EJ landed with chirps and took off after a very short stay!
Just show she didn't bring anything:
Because this could give the impression of a stick in her talons:
The evening get-together:
I didn't think he made very good contact:
Off he seemed to fly...
But wheeled around and re-landed :o
Look at that CROP !!!
This time he was off for real:
EJ waited a couple of minutes before flying off herself :)
And while I was posting that stream of spam, EJ landed with chirps and took off after a very short stay!
EJ has now flown.
He flew off the side and re-landed, now flown again... ...
