Live streaming webcam.
The first returnee was spotted yesterday.
Thanks lpp - fab news! Can't seem to get a signal on the live stream at the mo (or maybe it's dark?), but will have to try again.
It should be fun =, rowan - it's a beautiful place there!
And yes, it's dark - we should be altering the clocks here soon, so that will help.
But of course! I've been spoilt rotten by all the infrared cams.
I wonder how the Estonian and Latvian ospreys are doing.
Will have to check them out too - spring is definitely here now & there are many little birdies rushing around picking up nesting materials.
Looks like there's already been some drama at the nest - cheeky young female trying to steal the incumbent's nest and fish:
Thanks, rowan - will try to catch them tomorrow - Ospreys do seem to be very inventive birds!
Looks like the incumbent male hasn't returned. Here's a new one, 28(10), trying to make himself at home but getting blown about in a rather undignified way (and then casting a furtive glance at the camera as if to see if anyone was watching...)
Brilliant clip, thanks rowan
Wow - the Manton Bay female - now known as Maya - has not only accepted a new mate after her long-time partner failed to return, she laid her first egg just three days after that!
Here's the new mate, 28(10), trying to figure out what to do with the egg:
He's since learnt to incubate it.
