Beautiful snaps early yesterday, MARY :-*
This morning Laddie arrived @ 05:02 and took over during the day/night/day phase.

There has been a change over, I was checking on scroll back, and found Laddie had arrived 1.45 minutes ago and tried his best to get Lassie off the eggs.
She stayed put, and kept chirping at him, obviously to go for breakfast, so he eventually left.
About 5 minutes ago he arrived back fishless and she did get off the eggs and they changed over.

Intruder around. Lassie watching then getting up and screeching at whoever.

Lassie enjoying a little preen as she incubates. Pleased to see it looking nice here unlike a little further up where it is snowing just now!

Lassie suddenly shot up, a threat of what I don't know.
Over quickly and she settled down on the eggs again.
Its blowing a hoolie at Lowes just now, despite it being sunny.
A very strange incident happened about two hours ago, I picked it up on scroll back.
I think it was Laddie who arrived on the nest, Lassie got up and whether she was annoyed that he didn't have a fish or not, she kept jumping at him and batting her wings, he eventually flew off. I don't think it was an intruder, Laddie in the bad books now me thinks :-)
Lots of blurring with the movement, but just thought it was worth recording and posting.
They zoomed in after Laddie? left probably to check eggs, but it was still blurry so couldn't really see if OK or not.
That really was odd Mary, I have watched it twice trying to make some sense of it. I did read somewhere about something similar on New Hog Island ospreys, only it was Steve who attacked Rachel. Just hope the eggs are ok!
