DAILY UPDATE (Loch Garten nest) Saturday 26 May 2012

  • EJ looks absolutely stunning on the night cam now.  It must be something to do with plenty of fresh air, and a diet of fresh fish :-)

  • Some more fresh pixels help too ;-)

    She is digging around in the nest cup at the moment, and one of the chicks at least looks quite active

  • EJ (and the nest) looking stunning

    I can now capture images direct from the video stream without worrying about loss of quality, hence the lack of timestamp.

    It's actually slightly sharper than the still images on the webpage now

  • Ah yes, RtB.  It's a good service where old messy pixels can be traded for fresh new ones ;-)

    I get the feeling that the chicks are going to be quite restless tonight.

  • EJ tries to have a snooze, fluffing her feathers out to help lose heat

    but the chicks disturb her, so she turns into a bald eagle instead ;-)

  • I'm an osprey really you know!

  • She is now snoozing again.

    The chicks seem to be relatively inactive, although the occasional movement wakes her up

  • Have just been checking on Lady's progress. It seems the 2nd egg still hasn't hatched, and I think it's unlikely now. There is still another....but imagine the size difference there!

  • The Curse of 2359 strikes

  • and we're back, thankfully at the same quality as before!

  • The Curse of 23.59 does indeed strike.  Had to refresh three times to get pic back.

  • Started new thread

  • I find it's not worth refreshing until the clock ticks over to 00:00 at least

  • Cheers Heron, time to leave this one behind and move to pastures new

  • Just caught up, what wonderful news re the cam.  Off I go to the new thread :-)
