Re: Daily Update (LG Nest) Friday, April 5, 2013
This is not an update, but an historical piece, with thanks to Tiger over on the Dyfi thread and to scylla for having found it. In 2005 Henry arrived back at Loch Garten on 25 April and is somewhat dischuffed to discover eggs in the nest! EJ arrived back on 25 March and by 25 April had already had a...

Re: Dotting is and crossing ts
Remember it was EJ who 'told' us last year, at the time of Odin's return from migration....we who were watching the webcam then knew that Odin was very close, the comments are there on last year's forum to prove it.....so we knew via EJ that he was back, long before we actually saw him...

Barbara Jean: Its funny how we remember things early in the morning, so it was this morning that I realised I had a Keith Brockie book of sketches and paintings.
