Nothing on the nest at Glaslyn. Chicks must be getting some exercise.

All chicks appear to have returned - one on the nest and two on the branch out front. These two could have been there before as the branch wasn't in camera shot.

Looks like Doddie at Loch Arkaig is away for some exercise.

All 3 are now on the Loch Arkaig nest, none on Glaslyn.

Loch Arkaig - think its Captajn and Vera on the nest. They look miserable in the rain.

Did some more digging on where Glaslyn is.

It is in Montgomeryshire and is 19.3 miles from Aberdyfi by road (A493). Probably about 15 miles as the Osprey flies. Probably not too far to fish for food for the chicks. A lot of flat fish are being brought into the nest.
