ALAN PETRIE said:News of Tweed Valley tracked birds. Megget is OK fishing in the Rio Omana in northern Spain Talla - no further signals
Thanks Alan, great to get news of Megget, fingers crossed for Talla. Such a hazardous time, migration, unfortunately usually because of us humans.
In reply to Geemeff:
Apparently the pair has returned early, they're bonding and nestorising.
I can't remember exactly, but I think the past 2 years their hatchlings have been taken by corvids. The cam operator says that if eggs hatch this season they will close down the cam until the osplets are past meal-size, keeping would-be watchers informed. I shan't be following it but recorded some footage this past couple of days.
Female tripping while nestorising:
The messiness of the nest shows up at nighttime - as do some creepy-crawlies (mini-crabs? spiders?) but not well enough to snap:
EDIT - vid showing lizard and crab - there may also have been a tree frog or two but I'm not doing those:

In reply to Cirrus:
I forgot that I'd posted Captiva in here and have since posted more in the free-for-all thread. From now on I'll put them in this restarted thread 2022.
JUNE 2021 - The short-lived albino Osprey chick in Urdaibai, Basque Country.
I've been saving the original 3 days' worth of footage until I could find the time and emotional space to produce a video, and here it is - half an hour covering the 3 days.
