Birdies LG DU update.
Thanks Peter and Mike! Scylla, I rather like the alternative scenes!
A slight breeze today, but dull and overcast
I caught that snip just in time - 'Live stream offline' now, the same on YouTube.

In reply to SilverS11:
SilverS11 said:however I do understand that they are desperate to attract someone to the nest. They are having such a bad year
Yep I agree with that Silver too, that's why I didn't say I disagreed with the decision, as you say they must be desperate to try anything.

I too am surprised but I suppose RD knows best. Personally I would have thought a total overhaul would have been more appropriate - ie its centre dug out and some branches tied in all around it for lets face it, the osprey tends to be lazy looking for a ready made nest so why not? I know it would be very sad seeing this but I still see the nest as EJ and Odins, it having "grown" over the years with them but those days are past now and it is time for a new young pair to claim this nest with the opportunity to build and make it their own.
