Up where we belong

What a lovely day to come and see the wonderful wildlife of Lyndon! The meadows are still looking marvellous, the beautiful blooms shining brightly in the summer sunshine. The Osprey pair have been in the Bay for most of the day, flying around and preening on perches.

Two intruding Ospreys were seen in the area this morning, one of which was 30(05) again! She didn’t come that close to the nest this time, but a visitor with a very large lens saw the satellite transmitter on her back.

For a while both Ospreys left the Bay, but it wasn’t long before they returned again and took up their rightful places near their nest. 33(11) brought in another stick, which he hasn’t been doing as much of lately, then he began incubating nothing again! Or perhaps he just wanted a rest, he did look rather comfortable sitting there in the sun.
