According to my log…

I know we have put a fair bit of nest building on the website recently, but this is really quite funny. The Manton Bay female brought in a rather large stick today, well more like a log actually, and she seemed a bit stumped as to what to do with it! It didn’t seem like the kind of material an Osprey nest really needs, and she couldn’t decide where to put it at first. She finally seemed to settle on a certain spot, but after all that I think it has now fallen off! Well she’s keeping busy anyway! Here’s a short clip of the log positioning, and a sequence of photographs of her and the log.

She looks critically at the log, is this the right place for it?
