At 1041 this morning, I observed Black Yellow 23 stripping a fox tail on a branch of a tree near Hundred House. Whilst this was happening an untagged bird arrived and took advantage of the lady! After taking a moment or two to compose herself she continued preparing lunch.

Black Yellow 23 was hatched in 2004 at Halfway, Llandovery and was seen regularly at Gigrin feeding station but has not been seen since 2008. This bird was seen about forty kilometres from the natal nest, where I believe there may have been a nest last year; it would now appear my suspicions were correct.
