We had another unexpected visitor today when one of our Red Squirrel kittens decided to see what it was like inside the Visitor Centre. To the great amusement of everyone inside the kit had a wee look around before rapidly leaving again and returning to its normal place on the feeders.
Blue 44 has been having more attempts at fishing; he still hasn’t worked out the need to hover first but our male started giving him demonstrations so hopefully Blue 44 will work it out soon!
There’s been no sign of our female, affectionately known as Lady/Marge/Isla, all day and we’re beginning to wonder if she’s started her migration, we’ll just have to wait and see if she appears again.
The latest batch of satellite data has arrived and shows the chick following his normal pattern of short flights around the area. Unfortunately we’re having problems with the software so are unable to upload to the website at the moment. We hope to get this sorted soon.
A quick ‘hello’ to Joanna from the Kielder Osprey Project, who came up for a visit today. It’s always great to catch up with our colleagues from the other Osprey projects, and Joanna also writes their blog so we swopped notes too. The Kielder team have two nests to look after, we have enough shenanigans on one to keep us busy!
