Thanks for all the great posts, pics, videos etc on yestarday's Daily Update. Seems like it was a momentous day at LG on Monday. Perhaps EJ has set off on another migration to Africa. If so her last appeance on the LG nest in 2010 was something to behold. It was almost as if she was saying: "See you later." to the magnificant Odin, and perhaps even us viewers. She deserves to play to the camera though. She's an absolute star. Can't wait to see her next spring.Rain falling at LG now. Who knows what dramas today will hold.
I'm starting to feel tired, so I'll fly off to roost.
I'm hoping against hope, for selfish reasons, that EJ stays around just a little longer. As you say, she is such a superstar.
Still tipping down with rain at the moment
Raining on EN.
Yesterday: Odin: Dear, that was such fun raising those chicks. Why don't we start again?EJ: In your dreams, mate. I'm holidaying in the sun first.
Alternative scenario:Odin: Dear, why don't we confuse these humans by performing some unexpected behaviour?EJ: Yes, hahaha, that will send them into a blogging frenzy.
Heron: Thanks for starting the thread!
AQ: Very funny! :-)
Sorry all, can't stay on tonight - I'm off to bed. Lots of driving to do tomorrow and don't really feel like it. Oh well. Night all.
We have colour. ENS. Plink, plonk, still raining. And someone is grizzling in background.
A GEM with a sore throat has landed on nest, complaining about room service or weather or whatever.
EDIT - Flapped a bit then flew off. Now complaining off-stage.
Eldest wanting breakfast and none will be coming, will it . Rhetorical question. Mum's gone and dad doesn't fish for the youngsters any more (does he?)
Ha ha ha AQ..... very good.
Safe driving Annette
Heron ... find a dry spot !
Hello everyone. I'm up too earlly for me really but I needed to know what was going to happen at breakfast time.
Has it been confirmed that EJ has gone?
No, AQ , it's just me who believes she has from her 'good bye' to Odin and her purposeful flight into the distance without veering to the right as she usually does.
Ah, so I can continue to watch expectantly for another afternoon at least!
Good for you, AQ. Yes you can. And meantime there is still the hope Odin will put in an appearance (although, he will now know EJ has gone - if she has, as I believe- ) and the youngsters will take time to register that all is not the same in their comfortable world.
There is a youngster about, I hear him call from time to time but nobody on the nest. I suspect it's Eldest since he has already put in an appearance. I do hope Staff mention the kids today in the blog, like they do sometimes. It's a critial time :)
FISH DELIVERY by EJ. GEM & EJ fly in together, exchange & she departs. Fish still flapping.
