Saturday 18th May

Over the past few days there has been much disruption caused by a persistent blue-ringed male intruder. During one particularly aggressive dive-bombing episode Aran was knocked from the nest edge and both birds took to the skies. The intruder is identified as Blue Z1 (Tegid), hatched at Dyfi in 2016. These skirmishes have caused Aran to be away from the nest for many hours at a time, leaving Mrs G to incubate alone and unfed. All seems settled for the moment though. Aran brought Mrs G a fish at 11.12 this morning and did a stint at incubation
