    Telyn to Idris, "Well, if you want to lay an egg or three, be my guest!" 

  • In reply to Limpy:

    Limpy, thanks for all your daily captures - good to 'see' you here.
  • Yes, as Sandra said, nice to see you here, Limpy.

    Scylla, as you requested, a caption suggestion:
    "Well, if you really don't want to do a lot of fishing this year, I'll just lay these eggs over the edge here, shall I?!"

    Kind regards, 

    Ann

  • Thanks, everyone, for the snaps and posts.
    Patily, Thanks, good idea of Ems to stop the chat for a time overnight, at least until there are eggs or chicks. The foreign chat began about 12:52 am to 2:12 am of the wee hours of yesterday, the 8th--it was just 2 folks chatting. I did not bother to attempt to find a translation of more than a few of their comments--simply did it to learn what language it was and the few comments I chose were incomprehensible even when translated to English so I've no idea what they were actually talking about, apart from there also being many smiley emojis, and I chose to head for bed shortly after they stopped. Their last comments translated as 'Night!'

    Kind regards, 

    Ann

    I had a look last night when I saw your post, GB - I thought there was a way to block foreign languages but maybe I've just seen Heather saying that she'd removed comments.

    I've forgotten the time, even approx!  Idris brought Telyn half a Mullet and less than 20 minutes later she brought it back for him:

    I've skimmed thru the night up to 04:00 - she's been buffeted, as you say, PATILY, but not knocked off her perch by any night-flyer and she got in some preens:

  • Telyn on the nest Idris flew down from Monty's perch to mate but now gone
  • MC. You have to check Dyfi at 0833.
    Prior to this Idris did some nest cupping and flew off with a mass of bedding in his talons.
    He flew to Monty's perch and sat there with the bedding. He then flew back to the nest ,carrying the mass of bedding and attempted to mate! with the bedding between him and Telyn!

    Birdies LG DU update.

  • Morning to all
