A bit battered but doing fine!

Just a quick update to say that after the hurricane strength winds on Monday I am happy to report that our osprey nest and ospreys both stood tight and battled against the winds. Our female is still incubating on the three egss which are due over the weekend. Our male is struggling to fish at the moment due to the ribbles that are being caused by the winds but he is being persistent, which is a good sign!

  1. Great news that all is still well at nest after horrific weather! My nest is still standing too & osprey pair XL & M fine too! Today is D35 for 1st egg here so hoping for a hatch any day. I know for certain that there are 2 eggs & probably 3 so fingers crossed! Keep us updated.
    Best wishes
