After the storm

What a wet, windy day! Well, morning – the afternoon brightened up considerably, after the tail-end of the storm passed us by. For a while this morning, we couldn’t see much on the camera. When the screen cleared slightly, we could see Maya sitting on the nest food begging. Today it appears she decided to wait for 33(11) to catch the fish, rather than expend energy unnecessarily and go herself. In weather such as this, fishing can be difficult, as the rain creates ripples on the surface of the water, and the wind creates waves that hinder visibility.

Here are some great photographs by John Wright of 8F(12) sitting happily next to 33(11) in Manton Bay on Friday, and of Maya sitting next to two fish!

    Wonderful photos from a different perspective.

    Lovely photos! Those fish look like they’ve been nailed on to the t-perch. I know ospreys are clever birds but that would take some doing!
