Another day to wonder just how long the season will contrinue. Cally reached 86 days old today by that time quite a number of her predecessors had already gone. Both Nethy and Deshar left on 85 days. However they did not have a lot of choice as EJ left Orange VS to look after them. He caught a fish and brought it back to eat before them and said "Cherio have a nice life". Eventually both Nethy and Deshar did migrate with varyng degrees of success.
We will see what the morning brings.

Cally calling and mantling on nest
Sound still 'muted' :-(
Thanks, Tiger for starting us off - more interesting facts for us to ponder and compare with today's family.
Edit - many thanks again to Moffer for working hard so early this morning and creating a summary for yesterday.
Both looking skyward for breakfast!
Cally's still calling
06:06 FISH!!! from Odin
I think Cally grabbed fish but I deleted capture by mistake. Odin only just on RHS - may have flown but briefly reappeared on nest
Cally flies off with fish, then Alba leaves
Matching wide view to prove both are there
06:18 EJ with FISH!!! I think Cally wins again
Edit - Cally has fish (I'm not sure if Odin delivered fish or stick now at 06:06. It could have been a very small fish which Cally wolfed down quickly.)
Morning all. Is there a problem with the sound today or is it my pc. I've got volume on high but can hardly hear anything
Odin returns - with stick much to Alba's disappointment! Cally just sitting over her fish.
Morning Bbabs - definitely problem with sound
06:34 Sisters flew off at same time - alarm? Needless to say, Cally took fish
Juv returns - must be Alba. Cally will still be eating EJ's large fish!
Thanks Birdsong x
Alba waits in the brilliant sunshine - surely mum will be back soon?
