The fall out of the Manton Bay family has continued today as 5R has been chasing his daughter 9F around Manton Bay again.
Whilst 9F is in the nest or on one of the perches in the bay, 5R is more than content to let her sit with the female and her brother, 8F, but as soon as she takes to the sky he leaps into action and chases after her.
There have been a couple of episodes today where we have held our breathes and watched to see the outcome of these chases but we’re pleased to say that on each occasion 9F has out manouvered her father and made it back safely to land on the fallen tree. This seems to have become the favoured resting place for both the juvenile birds from the Manton Bay nest.
With family’s in mind we will be holding our Osprey Family Fun Day at Lyndon on Friday 27th July. Bring your family along and become Ospreys for the day!
