Our First Bird of 2009

I am happy to report we have our first breeding bird of the 2009 season here in the Tweed Valley.
Alas it is not on our main live camera nest - yet! Will today be the day our stars arrive? we hope so!

Most of you will be familiar with the second nest we monitor in the area, affectionately know as the 'Backup' nest. It appears that the female on this nest is already in residence and busy housekeeping whilst waiting for her mate.
Many of you will know this bird as 'Errol's mum' as it was she in 2005 who raised an amazing four chicks to fledging ( a record ) one of whom was the famous runt Errol.

We hope to report very soon on more arrivals - stay tuned!
