Thread subject: Happy news from LotL - Plus More drama at Rutland
Name Date Message
Anne-UK1 07/20/12 06:34 pm This year is getting quite unbelievable. I've almost lost count of the near misses there have been for our various youngsters.

The best news is that Blue 44 is safely back on the nest at LotL after being awol since fledging on Monday. The account of his return makes fascinating reading - Lowes Blog

Hopefully we'll have yet another happy ending at Rutland too - Link to today's events at Rutland

vickinish 07/20/12 06:57 pm Anne, what is the relationship between the attacker and victim at Rutland.
Lyn 07/20/12 06:58 pm Just read the news of all the action at this site. I never knew that this kind of situation could take place. Still learning!!!
Thanks for all the info.
Trishrg 07/20/12 08:11 pm Wow, what a harrowing day at Rutland. I haven't followed that nest, but that's some wild goings on. Hopefully they can release 9F with no problem in the morning.
Whew!!!
Anne-UK1 07/21/12 03:31 am Father and daughter Vicki. Hopefully the plan to release her today while he's off fishing will work out okay and things will get back to normal.

We're certainly seeing some different things this year!
Anne-UK1 07/21/12 07:00 am Twitter update from Rutland:

"2h Rutland Ospreys â@rutlandospreys
UPDATE - 9F is safe and well and has just been put back in the nest while 5R is away fishing - a full update willl follow"

Fingers crossed.

As for Blue 44 at LotL, I don't think he's left the nest since returning yesterday. Certainly each time I've looked in he's there. It may be a while before he plucks up the courage to take off again, after his early adventure.
Trishrg 07/21/12 08:54 am Great that 9F is safe in the nest! What drama!

First thing I saw on Facebook this morning was from Dyfi.
"Dyfi Osprey Project
â09:30 HE'S OFF!!

HE'S UP - HE'S DOWN. HE'S ON THE GROUND AROUND 40M AWAY FROM THE NEST

MORE LATER"
Shelley 07/21/12 10:37 am They can't write soap opera this exciting! ;-)
Lyn 07/21/12 10:46 am Wow makes me wish I could follow all the nests closely to kepp up with all the goings on, although the latest drama could be done well without!
Anne-UK1 07/21/12 12:21 pm Oh crikey. Thanks Trish. I haven't checked on Dyfi yet today. These youngsters are certainly keeping everyone on their toes!
Anne-UK1 07/21/12 12:26 pm Just had a quick peek, young Ceulan's fine. A nice photo of him sitting in the field looking at a cow on their facebook page from earlier :) Now he's up on the perch with one of his parents, enjoying the sunshine.
Anne-UK1 07/21/12 04:54 pm Great blog from Dyfi, including footage of Ceulan's first flight - Link

And congratulations to Tiger for Jointly winning the "guess the date and time" competition :)
Shelley 07/21/12 05:53 pm Wow, Anne, thanks. That footage is spectacular! I love how they are able to capture from several angles. Funny, how you know Ceulan is so new at it; he was so stiff-legged in that first clip, when he was flapping and getting *air*. Doesn't yet realize to bend his knees, tuck his legs up and close to his body for more aerodynamics. Heehee, I'm sure he will *get it* very soon.
Tiger 07/22/12 04:07 am Thank you Anne. It was good.
Celeste 07/23/12 05:05 am Just catching up, and as Shelley said, better than a "soap opera"!

Hope 5R gets used to the idea that he has to give "his" offspring, "roots and wings":-)
Anne-UK1 07/23/12 04:33 pm It doesn't seem to be going so well at the moment. Apparently, every time she flies he chases her. Yet he's fine when she's on the nest. All very odd. They say today she has just stayed on the nest all day - and who can blame her.
