In reply to Sandra :
17:56 NC0 returned to the perch
Laddie left the nest
NC0 resumed incubation
To note: A link to SWT's YT video re yesterday's three intrusions is on the previous page
A headless fish delivery from Laddie at 18:57
Incoming from behind the nest
The cam zoomed in slightly just as NC0 was about to leave.
NC0 didn't land on the birch feeding but instead flew over and beyond it

In reply to SheilaFE:
I agree, Sheila, especially as she had been seen at Poole in March (see here). Also, I'm very surprised that Blue 167 is ringed on his right leg knowing that he came from a nest south of Inverness.
Edit: An extra bit of info on LotL Fb page, stated this with regards to 8C, 'Interestingly her brother 9C who breeds in Cumbria, was sighted a few weeks ago at Leighton Moss.'
NC0 back to the perch at 19:42. She flew in from behind the nest
Onto the nest. More preening
Laddie up from the eggs
And off he flew
Settled to begin her overnight incubation

In reply to Glider:
Good morning all, Not a good start! Laddie delivered a large headless fish at 5:10ish.
On her fly away from the nest, it dropped out of NC0's talons and headed down to the ground!
NC0 flew full circle to arrive back onto the nest!
9:04 NC0 is calling for fish
