Even weirder than meeting me, surely not :D
You aren't weird at all, just interesting! And I don't suppose you steal stuffed toys and litter the living room with them.

Yes, definitely weirder! The monkey in Marigold's clip has a horrible grin on its' face - enough to scare a newly hatched chick to death!

That is so odd and funny! Good insulation - nothing like a stick - clump of moss? I could just hear - "That's nice dear! Do you think we need any more though?! (I'll just put it out the way over here)"

No I just make model planes/tanks and leave bits everywhere.
The clip where he brings in a mucky old sock is brilliant just for the look on the females face. Don't think she was too keen on the frog either

Yes! Fantastic!
The youtube stream is brilliant, with 2 hours rewind. I was intrigued to know if ospreys stand up to lay their egg like chickens do but no - she just fluffed up a bit for a few mins while Aran was preening right next to her and there it was. Well done!!!

and, of course, for the first time tonight:

What a privilege this tech is giving us!

I'm hoping that youtube have given Glaslyn a good deal on the service as a charity. Money well spent whatever but I hope they see the value in providing for free (or near enough) as it should be good all-round.

And I hope that everyone who enjoys watching it will give a contribution to the Glaslyn website as well.

Wow! Do we know if all 50 eggs hatched and chicks survived?
