DAILY UPDATE (Loch Garten nest) Tuesday, 1 May 2012

  • No, they've only got one stomach as far as I know :-)  EJ looks fast asleep now.  No, I think her eyes are open - at least, one of them is.

  • Actually she looks pretty sleepy right now! Oh, spoke too soon - her head is up.
  • Oh the minutiae that can engage us when events are, um, uneventful ;-)

  • I guess it tells us how dreadfully exciting our lives are, lol!
  • But, you know, I do wonder what osprey think about when they awake in the middle of the night, or are perhaps  hallucinating  daydreaming in mid-afternoon while brooding. Odin does seem to be a deal more hyper than EJ when on the eggs, it seems to me.


  • Yes, the two are quite different characters.  I've been thinking how distinctive they both are too, in their own ways.  The kalakotkas ospreys could be any ospreys, but not so either EJ or Odin :-)

  • I think those Estonian osprey look so much more fierce than either Odin or EJ, for some reason, maybe because the cam has so much more contrast.

  • I agree.  EJ is resettling with a wiggle.

  • I think I need to get myself to bed, even though it is only a mere 9:50 here in the eastern US! Must be up early and at 'em for another day tomorrow! EJ seems to be settled and has her head tucked under for a spot of sleep - may she have pleasant fishy dreams! Goodnight scylla, and see you on the morrow!

  • Goodnight, CC :-)

    EJ's popped off for a break.  And back again in a jiffy.

  • EJ's jiffy break:

  • Just noticed that the daycam is on.

  •  Goodnight folks :-)

  • Evening - um - think I missed everyone. Had computer problems earlier in the evening which has thrown off my "to do" list.

    Scylla: Thanks for starting us off

    Patily: Thanks very much for the Summar.

    Hi to Heron and RtB

    And CC (congrats to CC on finishing your classes).  Very colorful comments from you tonight!  :-)

    EJ on the nest still.

  • I know I only just got here but I'm really tired and have a busy day tomorrow so am heading off to bed. Take care everyone.
