After Friday's excitement seeing Mrs BTO (thanks Karen), not one osprey landed on the nest, although we think we heard one nearby. Super-sleuth-scylla managed to record what we heard. But maybe we were all haliaetus-hallucinating, as Fergus from LG HQ posted to say they'd not seen anything all day, except one osprey flying overhead (although some of us were watching the webcam before the centre opened). Anyhow, there's always another day........
EDIT; title changed to 'update' as there's not a lot of nest activity at present. We can revert back to daily updates once we have 2 or 3 days of solid action if you get my drift

Good morning, all!
It looks as tho it's been raining:
Morning All - thanks Korky for starting the thread off and for a great intro :-) I too would very much like to see 15+ pages. Fingers crossed for a more eventful day!!
Afternoon chaps and chapesses. I've been back over the past two hours, and unless there was a really quick touch down, I can't see that we have had any visitor, at least certainly no large ones. My hand isn't as steady as it might have been, but I think I touched every minute!
The weather is grey - partly cloudy, and windy, although a check of Boat of Garten weather forecast it is a pleased 19-20 degrees just now. A cheep of some little bird, possibly a blue tit.

Four ospreys this morning in pretty good light, I'm sure its after the pretty heavy wind yesterday that kept changing direction all morning, all young males but they look like they are all fishing well and must have females at the nest, what tells me this is the way they fish/ behaviour while fishing.
Interesting that only the males are fishing at the moment. I can't believe that all females are on eggs, particularly as we felt Friday's osprey was female - interesting too that others aren't so sure NB the latest blog from Chris.
