It’s been another beautiful day, albeit rather windy, but when the wind dropped the sun packed some heat! The Ospreys have had a lazy day, and 33 only caught a tiny wee fish at about 14:30, which I blinked and missed!
33 disappeared again later, and I thought he must have gone off to catch another, hopefully bigger, fish, but then he reappeared with nothing! Maya didn’t seem to mind, and they swapped over incubation duties.
As we have come to expect, the pair have spent a lot of time sitting next to each other on the nest again today. It’s lovely to see them so close together and clearly comfortable in the other’s company, and is testament to the bond that they have formed. That bond bodes very well for the rest of the season, and hopefully many more to come!
Although the stick deliveries have decreased since the eggs were laid, the Ospreys are still very nest proud, and have been seen moving bits and pieces around and arranging materials. Here’s a video of 33 moving a stick today. I’m glad he did move this because it had been getting in the way of the view!
