In reply to scylla:
Your photos are so beautiful Scylla! Yes, Louis has the easy bit. That Tawny is very persistent, three strikes between 11pm and 2am overnight 7-8th May, and another two strikes last night 10-11pm 8th May. Is it the same owl, or is it more than one feeling threatened by having Ospreys in the area? Maybe we need a Tawny Owl cam!

A video clip with two questions about Osprey nest cam watching, if you feel like responding - could you please leave your responses on the YouTube video comments, not here on RSPB community, thank you!
Geemeff said:Wonder if it's the same owl doing all the strikes? Three overnight 7-8th, and three last night too. Poor Dorcha,
It's been worse for poor Dorcha than anything Aila went thru at the 'hands' of the owl. Somehow I think it's one individual, surely it must have its own clutch/brood and both parents wouldn't be out defending their territory at the same time ???
And then dear Dorcha has the weather to contend with
11.44 A very thin unringed female lands on the nest, Dorcha chases her off but she returns and steals Dorcha's fish! Bit of a cheek, but she obviously needed a good meal.
07.36 Oops a daisy Dorcha drops her breakfish
C2 19.26 Louis makes an unorthodox exit
