A very wet day in the Bay today! The Manton Bay pair have been sitting around on the various perches for most of the day, occasionally visiting the nest, but not for long periods. A couple of intruding Ospreys came through the Bay, providing some great viewing of at least three, sometimes four Ospreys flying close to the hides!
33(11) caught a fish early this morning, and there were reports of a successful mating attempt, so all is going quite well, apart from the incessant rain! But the rain does make the air smell lovely!
Luckily for us, our Field Officer John Wright is a superb photographer, and he has provided some more amazing photographs of the action in Manton Bay over the last couple of days. This includes a lot of nest building, some pellet regurgitation, and an intrusion by male Osprey 30(10), who is Maya’s son from four years ago!
