The morning dawned bright and sunny, and a bit chilly with a slight frost covering the ground. A beautiful spring day followed, bringing with it the promise of good things to come. Soon, the meadows will be adorned with wild flowers, the pond in front of the Lyndon Centre will be surrounded by colour, and the smell of wild garlic will sweeten the air on the first bit of footpath on the Lyndon Reserve.
The sun shone down on the osprey nest all day, and Maya and 33 have been on it frequently, adding sticks and grass here and there and enjoying the view.
Volunteer Dave Cole provided us with some wonderful footage of the ospreys and other wildlife in Manton Bay last season. Already this year he has been spending time filming the Manton Bay pair from Shallow Water Hide, and has edited together a beautiful video of Maya and 33 from 30th March. Here it is!
