As Tim mentioned in yesterday’s update, another Osprey has returned to Rutland! 03(97)’s mate has now joined him at Site B, four days later than last season. This female has been breeding with 03 since 2009, and they have raised 14 chicks together. It’s fantastic that she is back! Here are a couple of photographs John Wright took of her at her nest.
John also captured a video of 03(97) and his mate getting re-acquainted at their nest yesterday!
