Stunning video by Scyllabub, MIRACULOUS GUY GJ returns with fish - he learned his lessons and returns to duties unless he doesn't fail to chasing pine martins...

The agony has ended: eggs were left alone more than 5 hours & GJ doesn't breed. EJ might have time to recover.

Surprising George - GJ - brought a fish, EJ grabbed it and flew. GJ starts to settle on the eggs again. He seems to like it...good behaviour for next season as DaD.

GJ brings fish !!! @ 1100hr - Perhaps GJ is starting to realise the duties of a male Osprey but It is way too late for this year...

That is too bad that he took so long. She did what she could, but her survival is first. I guess hoping for a miracle is too much to ask?
