5th April 2011
Despite the gales & rain since we rebuilt the nest I am pleased to report that it is still intact. I am even more pleased to report that XL has returned last Sunday, 3rd April.
There was a male near to the nest on Sunday morning but an ID could not be made. However, a large ringed male was spotted on Sunday evening close to the nest. XL did not appear happy with his presence but stayed on the nest issuing warnings.
Pictures of him are below
