I am sure Norman won't mind me sharing his photos here, they are such stunning photos of Blue YD would be nice to have them on this thread.

Looks like Blue YD is checking his natal nest out. Spotter thought it was resident male KR3 but correction made to post.
Some of the guys have been at the Loch today, and Blue YD is still there.
It would be wonderful if he took over his natal nest, just want a good season this year, I just hope KR3 doesn't turn up and they fight for the nest. It would be too raw after what happened to Green BF.
Darren is at the Loch just now, he thinks it is Mrs.BF on the nest, calling for fish. Blue YD has attempted mating this morning again.
Darren has been at the loch since before 9 am this morning, he sent me a couple of cracking photos of Blue YD. No doubt he will post on the Facebook Page himself later.
