A Tale of Two Sites…

Two days ago, Ken’s last report told us about his recent Site B experience when the family spent much of their time away from the nest. I also experienced this yesterday morning when I sat in the shed with Anya and Emma for two hours and 03 graced us with his presence for 15 minutes. There was no sign of 33(11) or the female. In the afternoon volunteer Alex also shared a similar fate when she saw an Osprey for a total of 10 minutes during her four hour shift. Are the Site B residents already preparing to leave?

But what a contrast it has been in Manton Bay today. Alex and Anya joined forces this morning and when they arrived in Waderscrape hide they were greeted by the sight of five Ospreys! What a treat after such a quiet day yesterday. It has been a good day for us all at Lyndon with a minimum of four Ospreys in the Bay all day. Even the chicks are being considerate to our many webcam viewers by spending time on the nest. Nice to see when recently we are used to fleeting glimpses as a fish is being delivered. Long may it continue! As today shows there is still plenty going on in Manton Bay so it is well worth a visit.
