In reply to patily:
Transferred here from ROP because S2 is not present as hoped.

In reply to Sandra :
Male arrived @ 06:30 and chilled for half an hour before starting another morning of toil:
The goose had to be driven off again - it had been on the nest for nearly 10 minutes:
I didn't see 2 on the nest until the female turned up @ 18:40 - whereupon she wouldn't allow BlackT to mate, their behaviour was that of a new couple, which I suppose they are?

Male at Loch Insh today waiting on Green DY. And then a treat of two doggos on a paddle board
In reply to LisaM:
Last post from Visarend - BlackT repeatedly teased the female with a fish, I never did see it relinquished to her:
Sylva & Reda 04 have first egg, I guess since 6 APRIL 2021 (on 5 April I didn't see any on the video rewind )
