How EJ will go on if she lays and he doesn't turn up with food we will have to wait and see, I just hope she has enough body reserves to cope.

Hurry up back Henry!
Well if memory serves me right he returned

2004 4th April
2005 25th April
2006 10th April

Now in 2005 he was near dead.

He was nearly dead, very weak but he still looked after EJ, I think there were no chicks but the bond they have became even stronger. That year showed him as the superstar he is, if only I hadn't lost all the stuff on my PC last year. There is still time the Bassenthwaite pair don't seem to be back yet either.

We have to keep hoping. I know of one American Osprey (tagged of course) who likes travelling. exploring I guess as he has doubled his migration journey twice, they had christened him Homer when tagged as a chick, very appropriate.

That was the year that Henry chucked the eggs out of the nest.

Have you not read the Basenthwaite thread? There is a female osprey on the cam this morning.

Concerns for Henry are growing again. He is now a week late on last year. If he does not arrive soon he may find a nest of eggs.

EJ is looking more and more as if she is about to lay an egg. Is this going to another year of scrambled eggs?

Here's a better pic of EJS egg.
Will be just like Henry to turn up now and start playing football.
Is Orange VS still around, I hav'nt seen him for 2 days on the web cam.
May just be my timing.

Orange VS has been hanging around all afternoon. Henry must be too tired to fight him.

orange vs had brought EJ an early morning rainbow trout from the fish farm.

If Henry arrives in the next week or so expect some trouble but I'm losing hope now that we won't see him this year and unfortunately we will be relying on orange vs to be a reasonable mate and father.
Too much to hope ? - probably.

About an hour ago I checked the cam and saw two birds stood on the nest with no eggs in sight. The male looked very much like Henry. Now it looks as though EJ is incubating again. Whether she has found an egg I do not know, but something is happening up there all right.

Yes it seems like Henry is back.

Oh it is so great that Henry is back. When will that EJ ever learn that Henry does not like adultry!

When he bucks his ideas up, gets his wings in a flapping and gets back on time
