Days like these

Days like today epitomise the way life is meant to be for Ospreys at this time of year! Today has played out much like yesterday, with a quiet peacefulness over the bay and the Ospreys behaving just as they know they should. It doesn’t get much better. There is a distinct sense of contentment radiating from the birds as they sit on the nest, incubating their three eggs. They are doing what their instinct dictates, and they are doing it perfectly. We cannot ask for more than that.

Togetherness

The Manton Bay pair sitting contentedly on their nest

 

Again they have been changing incubation shifts throughout the day, and not just when fish is brought in.

 

Speaking of fish, 33 has brought in two today. The first was a bit of a disappointment, due to the fact that it was so small…

33 delivers a tiny fish

33 delivers a tiny fish

Maya takes the little fish off 33

Maya takes the little fish off 33

And flies away with it

And flies away with it

 

However, he redeemed himself later by bringing in a huge trout!

Maya flies off with the great big fish
