Another intrusion, just as I'm waiting for the first one to process. Haven't been able to focus on it yet. Blue Darvic is all I can say. Bird on nest flown now.

In reply to scylla:
Aran's golden early-morning fly-in with stick:
The first intrusion, around 14:35:
Z1 popped to other side, KA3 arrived, didn't stay as long:
Second intrusion - omitting flyabouts where birds can't be ID'd - just Hesgyn on nest:
Apparently there was a Buzzard in the morning - I found it but it's far too distant to ask you to look at a snap.
I wonder who this is now?
That's me finished, whatever happens (I promise myself )
Just spotted this on Glaslyn's Facebook page from yesterday. scylla, I think you got snaps of this
'Three ospreys were seen on the Glaslyn nest this afternoon - but neither Mrs G nor Aran were one of them! Z1/Tegid landed first, followed by his half-brother KA3/Hesgyn. An unringed osprey then landed before Z1 chased him from the nest. We wonder who this unknown osprey was?'
In reply to Korky:
MrsG roosted on the perch overnight:
Not long ago she flew to the nest, stood there for a few minutes, then seemed to pounce on her way to flying off - I can't tell if she picked anything up:
Little birdie from perch to right fence of the nest, just stood standin' there.
Intruder(s) again - I don't know if this is the first instance as I haven't been watching.
They just flew from the nest - one may have been Aran, gotta check back now.
The cam that's in use today seems to be chocolate teapot - can't see the whole nest and very unwieldy.
Per Chat, quote "Sami" - Z2/Aeron on nest first, chased off by KS8 Clywedog female. Then Aran landed, and Z2 swooped over.
And "Bywyd Gwyllt Glaslyn Wildlife"- They were all over the Pont Croesor nest before heading towards the Glaslyn nest.
There was a plane going over, I can't do anything about it because there's not enough space between osprey voices to tell "it" to lower the plane only.
Aran was back on the nest @ 14:26 defending vs unseen intruder:
He dived downwards, the cam couldn't pick him up flying away:
