The Manton Bay female and 28(10) have been getting very friendly on the Manton Bay nest today!
It looks as though 28 is settling in. He spent a lot of time just sitting next to the female on the nest.
He brought some nest material in, and he did a bit of nest scraping, losing a battle against the wind for a moment!
Eventually he went fishing and brought a fish back to the nest, though he seemed a bit reluctant to hand it over!
The return of 5R is looking less likely with each day that passes. If things continue as they have today, 28 could well take 5R’s place as the Manton Bay male. The Manton Bay female has clearly accepted him. Watch this space.
