Morning Annette :-) I video'd an hour of LotL (LG cam is down, as if you couldn't guess ;-) ), nothing much happened apart from Laddie's arrival, standing still, and departure.

Scylla: It's been a very quiet year over here; no siblings so no sibling rivalry - a scene of contentment. Hurray!
So much less stressful for osprey-lovers - if I could follow more than one nest I would. Even though I don't keep in close touch I am thrilled that Lady is raising a healthy chick this year, and thrilled that she has such an attentive mate.
You and others at LG are so talented with the videos that I don't feel bad hanging out over here this year. Laddie has turned out to be just a brilliant mate, much to everyone's relief.
Lady has been for a flyabout and is back; Laddie was by earlier but left fairly quickly. He should be back with a fish soon if past performance is any indication....
Bllue44 alone and dozing
Lady and Laddie have just flown in. Lady just stepped on Dumpling as she lunged at the huge fish Laddie brought in. Mom and chick eating now while Laddie pokes about at the rear of the nest - oh and he's left.
OK, I'm signing off now. Have MELLOW day everyone. :-)
Hi and bye Patily!
Dumpling has again this morning a full tummy,not at all concerned that Lady eating the lion share.

Just watching Dumpling preening Bless, amazing how fast plucks away the baby down, sad but quite lovely to see the little white flurries,hopefully ensuring a good 'winger excercising' in the days ahead :)
Blue 44 is on his own at the moment, he is not so little now though is he, won't be long now until fledging time.

Still all alone. Wonder where mum is?
Good morning all and many thanks to Sandra, scylla, silver and Lynette for the captures and to all for comments. I so agree with Annette in that can this forum return to what it was with a really friendly group of people who keep us all up to date with pics and comments. Sandra and others please to keep posting, it has always been a pleasure to be part of the story of Lady, the wonderful Laddie and Blue 44 who appears well and content. Just read on the blog that fish deliveries are good even though the conditions are not good. Wonderful close up of Blue 44 on there as well.
