HANG ON!! There's a Stewards' Enquiry.
We need your help.
After several hours of studying all the camera angles and zooms, we now think that this morning's 'dogfish' may be a large salmon, possibly the left-over remains of an otter kill?
Know any anglers? What do you think?

Blue 493, Tegid's chick

August 11

https://www.facebook.com/BywydGwylltGla ... 4769456764
Mrs G and Aran had visitors yesterday, with three intruding ospreys over the Glaslyn nest around midday. One of the ospreys landed on the perch, giving us the chance to identify it and we were surprised to learn it was one of this years chicks from the Friends of the Ospreys BM nest, which is not that far away as the osprey flies. Blue 493 is a male chick and was obviously exploring the area for future reference. Mrs G was quick to send 493 back on his way home. Perhaps we will see him again in two years time?

Dysynni wakes up to his 99th Dyfi sunrise this morning. This will now make him the second oldest (out of 24) Dyfi offspring to migrate. Fascinating to ponder what makes some of these birds go as early as 81 days while others stay around for another three weeks... Berthyn (2019) holds the record of oldest youngster to migrate from this nest of 101.4 days.

Dysynni has migrated. Idris is filling his reserves with fish remains for the great journey south.
