DAILY UPDATE (LG Nest) Sunday 8th April,2012

  • Well it has been another exciting day at Loch Garten. EJ seems to have decided to return to Loch Garten. She still looks a bit jaded but she is improving.

    Now in the last hour our so we have the shocking revelation that EJ had indeed been playing away. She has been visiting the new nest of her lover Blue XD

     

    News from Roy Dennis

     

    On Thursday I hiked through the snow to check out blue XD and he was busy building his new nest in the next door tree (built by us a week ago) and with him was the Loch Garten female, although she's gone back and I hope tomorrow I'll find that the old female green J is back.

     

    Maybe Odin knew more than us. Clearly he was trying to attract EJ back with his night time sky dancing.

     

    I hope you all have a HAPPY EASTER SUNDAY

     

  • That was rather curt of you, TIGER ;-)

  • Thank you Tiger for starting new thread also big big thank you to Scylla Moffer and all who post pic vidios etc. These are all things I cant do (dont know how to) so they are much apreciated. Do we know how long it should be to egg laying ?

    We have ways of correcting that!

  • sorry will just have to leave it as i can't get it to work thanx anyway

  • Well I never, EJ playing away. Wonder if it was the night time sky dancing that brought her back. Poor Odin was getting desperate. Be interesting to see what happens when the first egg arrives.

  • Hope EJ has finally made her mind up as I cant take anymore stress

  • hope that worked this time

  • Tiger

    No, I see that it was just a holding tactic, and what a good cause!

    RE-QUOTE ROY DENNIS:

    So she did love him :o  Poor Odin.  I wonder if that accounts for EJ not quite looking her normal self?

    Thank you, TIGER!

  • This looks like a racing pigeon. And there will be some about as its the start of yhe racing season next week and some owners will be training them. Ask her if it has a ring on.

  • Well done.  I'm sure that someone will identify the "pigeon" for you, OW :-)

  • Tiger, thanks for starting us off.   A HAPPY EASTER to you too.

    Yes, we now know that she indeed did have a lover - will she settle down now with Odin and things get back to some normality although I appreciate that is not always the case in the bird world.

  • Thinking about EJ+XD+Odin - EJ must have been so confused, after all she attacked XD when Odin arrived, according to the Centre staff.  Curse the cam being down at the time.
