Hancock here: Delta 2 – Clean-up Report Sept. 17, 2018

I had reviewed the Nest needs with Darlene and Judy and the decision was that this year we would simply clean the cam domes and cut out some dead-wood as several of the tree's branches had died and were potentially contributing to the nest's earlier demise.

Myles climbed the tree without trouble under a sunny sky -- something quite different from our failed Sunday attempt. The only raptor seen today was a merlin that almost landed in the tree beside him – before flying off.

The cams were cleaned, the sound cables ‘squeezed’ to try and take away the occasional hummm. A couple of the ominous dead branches were removed and Myles descended without incident. A job well done. Jean Bobbett, and Judy Barrows from the east coast, conversed with Myles to confirm all removable marks were taken off the dome.

So thanks to all,

David Hancock.
