Dylan and Delyth are back at Welsh nest 5, and it looks as though the Llyn Brenig male was seen at Glaslyn briefly yesterday
The Loch Arkaig and Loch Doon pair have arrived safely, many more have made it safely back this week also.
A French bird surveyor reports that yesterday around a couple of lakes he saw at least 20 Ospreys with rings on waiting to move onwards

Maya at Rutland laid another egg - yesterday I think, so they've started incubation.

Ruth has just sent me this clip of an osprey bringing a collection of stuffed toys back to the nest. I think this is the weirdest thing I;'ve seen for a very long time.
