We saw her soar over the water early this morning, looking for a meal with the male at her side. At least I think it was the female of the pair. It’s not like I could look under the dress to be sure.
It is typical for the male to arrive and then rebuild the nest and tidy it up for her. She arrives several days later, ready to inhabit the old homestead from last year.
I will be on the look-out this weekend, for their cries and to see them in their nest or soaring above the water.
