Kind regards, Ann
Hello dear Gabbers,
it is high time to say hello again and let you know that we are well. Little Karl is a smart boy, and he loves nature. Karl is extremely fond of birdsong and squirrels (today we watched a bit television, something about a woman who takes care of little orphaned squirrels. Karl got all excited and made sounds of delight). Apart from that, Karl always shows his delight when he meets with our cat "Hugo". Unfortunately Hugo is not a cuddly fellow (at leats when children are concerned). Hugo is already an old gentleman and needs his peace, so this means for Karl: Just looking, not touching.
I've chosen a few pictures, if you like.
So you see: Apart from nature, Karl loves "reading". He has got a few books that he is very fond of, but he also likes browsing through newspapers.
Karl wants to do almost everything by himself: Brushing his teeth, eating.... You can see what he looks like. Maybe you observe that Karl sometimes eats with two spoons at a time:
One last picture: Karl went as a Smurf for Carnival
Kind regards, Bente

In reply to Gardenbirder:
Hi June. Great to see you around. 3 Years since you last posted and much has happened during that time but not at the nest apart from the odd visit. The past couple of days look encouraging with Blue AX6 and his Non Ringed Partner and now with the arrival of the first egg. It has been 6 years since we last saw a chick migrate from this nest BLUE AF0 (WILLOW) last sighted 20 August 2016. Eggs in 2017 the year Odin went AWOL followed by eggs in 2018 with an un-ringed male known as George but he seemed uninterested. Ironically it was 2016 the year we last saw a chick fledge at this nest was the year AX6 also fledged from Glen Affric. During this time of inactivity at Loch Garten I have looked forward to Ospreys settling just minutes from my home in Dunblane at Argaty (Lerrocks Farm). Successful last two years and incubating at present. May I also say Hi to Ann (Gardenbirder)
