Thank you for the blog link, MARY :)
This morning a pair of Great Tits popped in and out a couple of times:
Then (probably) a Coal Tit but didn't come close enough to snap.

22.5.20 The wind has been horrendous today
20:05 The nest is continuing to take a battering
I hope Laddie and NC0 are keeping safe
In the final minutes before nightcam, the clump is still stuck fast to the nest ;)
Well the nest has survived but it is blowing a right old hoolie up there this morning - horizontal!
I hope that Laddie and NC0 are hunkering down and safe.

It is still windy but not as bad as yesterday.
The sun broke through about an hour ago.
I scrolled back but couldn't find anything, although sometimes scrolling back you get those white patches so things can get missed.
This is for the record - as it lets us know what it is like for Laddie and NC0 who are not far away

12:30 Unringed male Osprey on the nest - Laddie?. Chipping heard seconds prior to landing, sounded like a second one chipping in the distance too
Stayed for around 3-4 minutes before flying off
14:09 Unringed male Osprey on the nest chipping/mantling
14:24(ish) Flew from the nest
13:27 Unringed male Osprey has landed on the nest. Chipping heard prior to his arrival and he continued while there
Laddie's distinctive 'Spanish Dancer' head marking?
13:34 Flew from the nest with the clump of moss from the centre in his talons
