    Apparently fish @ 11:37.

    I did report it CRinger, but failed to add a time on the first line, which I have now done.  Highly remiss of me.  CC also spoke of it.

  • 15.45 Axel thinks it is his turn with the fish and is calling!  

    16.27  Mistle has brought back the fish-  Mistle couldn't let go, and there wasa spot of leg pulling as Axel tried to drag it away.

    Success, and he flew off with the left overs and Mistle incubated.  It is still very windy

    I have tried three times to post my snip of the tug o' war, but I keep getting a red error, so if I remember I'll try again later.  One more go...

  • WOW! That was a 47 minute fish! I shall always measure them in minutes now and not inches!

    Some people think Ospreys are a matter of life and death. I don't like that attitude. I can assure them it is much more serious than that. 

  • I must go for a bit now. Possibly back later.

    That was very weird! When I looked earlier no-one had posted today at all until my post about the 1st fish............ once I saw your reply I scrolled back and my laptop had failed to load a whole page of posts! I DO apologise!

  • 18.17.05   #3 FISH  another brown trout but this was headless.  Another swift change-over.  They are becoming so professional!

    18.48-Axel is still incubating, dozing occasionally,  But one plus, I think the wind is easing.

  • Good evening, what a great day Axel hax had fishing, the small whale and the huge brown trout, well done. They are doing a fabulous job on this nest together. Hope it all countinues.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    That is SO apposite!

    I wish I could find words like yours!

    Instead I wander off into realms of useless adjectives and adverbs and thoughts of being President of Axel's fan club.

    Even my teacher at primary school once wrote in a report (and my mother still reminds me of it till this day) 'He loves the English language. He never uses 30 words where he thinks 30, 000 will do quite nicely.'

  • Thanks folks for your observations and pics, much appreciated.

    I can't argue with the fish ID - it's the one I think looks a bit like a kipper
