5R the fishing machine

If you have visited the Lyndon reserve recently then there is every chance that you will have seen a top class fisherman in action. In the past few days 5R has been in great form – catching numerous fish near the nest, often within sight of the hides on the Lyndon reserve. Here’s a series of photos showing him delivering a roach to the nest – and the female then feeding the young.

The chicks are thriving on such a fantastic supply of fish. The fact that there is so much food around means that there is rarely any squabbling at feeding time – as this video shows.

    Glad to see Manton Bay Ospreys are doing well and hope to get up to Rutland in the near future and see them in person.
