____________________________________Good morning. To all those on their way up to the bloggers meet on Sunday – safe travels. The weather looks promising for the big day. Maybe we will even get an egg hatching? Who knows?
Today I bring you another incredible picture by Paul Jessett. This bird flew in above his and Eths head totally oblivious to them. The bird is unrung so we have no more information. Its an absolute cracker. Look at the size of the whale/fish it has caught!!
NO FISH02.03 Lady isn’t getting much sleep with the rain. she keeps shaking her head. 05.41 logged in to see a quick visit by our boy – no fish or changeover, Lady had a good wing stretch & flap, a power poo, and settled back down on the eggs!! I imagine she may have placed her breakfast order at the same time!! 06.27 – Lady on the nest facing 10 o’clock. She looks very wet, bless her. 07.01 Lady gets up shakes her wet feathers and flies off for a break and back. 07.38 – She’s sticking like glue to those eggs this morning. Geese honking and birds singing in the background. 09 06 WEATHER LOOKS GRIM AT LOWES – YOU CAN SEE THE RAIN ON THE FEATHERS 12 25 LOVELY CLOSE UPS AT LOWES – THANK YOU SWT STILL SEE THE RAINDROPS ON THE FEATHERS – ALSO THE LITTLE FLOWER IN THE NEST 12-38 Laddie up and moves around, turns the eggs and settled down again. 12-47, looks as if it is still raining at Lowes. 12.52 – Laddie calling softly, while small bird is stripping the material on the mic. 12.56 – Lady flies onto the nest, Laddie flies off and our girl gets onto the eggs. Very smooth changeovers now. 13 57 ISLA still wet through, calling for Laddie to bring in a fish I think,,or to take over egg sitting,, 14-55, cant see who is on the eggs, weather awful camera doesnt seem to be focused properly. went full screen, even worse. Ah movement. Looks like Lady yes its Lady, can see the necklace and V on her head 14-59 has turned to face the right, but looking around. 15 11 Just saw LADDIE skimming the Loch, so did ISLA left hand side of the webcam,,he doesn’t look to be having much luck at the moment,, but at least he is trying,,bless him,, 15.21 What on earth did he bring to the nest???? 15-22 , Oh my lordy, what has Laddie brought in now? Mind her tail!! Make up your mind where that cot rail is going to be put. Yes you can look at us looking at you. Watch out Lady. Now its like a cycle handle bar in front of her. 15-25 and he`s off, leaving Lady to sort out the woodwork. 15-27, That really is a big piece with bits and bobs of twigs attached to it, and Lady is having a job to sort it out away from the front of her. 15 22 LADDIE lands on the nest with a humongous lump of grass with a large branch attached to it,, NOT what ISLA was expecting folks,, ” WHERE’S ME FISH”? 15.25 He can’t do anything with it, so he leaves it right in front of Lady for her to deal with!! He’s hysterical. 15.26 She’s trying so hard to deal with the obstacle without getting up off her eggs ~ he’s such a numpty at times! 15 26 ISLA trying to get ride of the, as Lorna has said “Cot Rail”,, that LADDIE brought in,, What is he like,,, 15-37, Lady has moved it a little bit back, just a midgies whisker, from in front of her. 16 03 GEESE JUST FLOWN ACROSS THE LOCH 16 04 LADY UP AND MOVED AROUND – LOOKS SO WET STILL 16 12 LADDIE comes in with another stick,, ISLA not happy at all, she is giving it large to the lad,,,he deserves it now,, she wants HER FISH !!! he didn’t ever offer changeover, the rotter ! 16 44 Lowes having a scan to the right of the nest,, Looking for LADDIE I bet folks,,, 18.02 – Night cam on. 19-38, Lady still on the nest. I see that stick has finally been moved away quite a bit, although I think there is still part of it there (looks like a giant wishbone).
20-29, Lady up, turns the eggs and settles back down again. Looks drier there at the moment. 21.04 Lady has been calling a bit more forcefully, perhaps she sees Laddie with a fish 21.07 LADY SHOUTING 21.13 Lady keeps nodding off with head falling forward in between shouting 21.25 Lady struggling to stay awake. 21.33 Lady is still shouting 21-47 Infrared cam on.. Lady still calling. To my knowledge, no fish delivery today. 22.05 Lady flat out keeping her eggs warm. I think she has her eyes closed, but not quite sure 22.31 Im getting no webcam at Lowes, says server not found again 22.41 Webcam still down at Lowes 22.43 Just checked the other SWT Cams and they are all down 23.11 I think we will all be having an early one tonight
