Still here!

The female osprey has not been seen for a while but there is still at least one juvenile and the adult male hanging about. One of the juveniles came onto the nest yesterday several times, shouting for food. However, it wasnt until 3 o'clock that I noticed it was feeding on a pike. So the male obviously had brought a fish in.
This morning one bird was sitting to the back of the nest but I couldnt see whether it was an adult or a juvenile because it was so far away.


  1. Not great but distances were tricky but these shots taken from the boat to the priory on Aug 15th
