Waiting for today to happen

Another lovely day today, and more of the same on the Osprey nest. The only thing we haven’t seen today is a fish! There’s still time for 33(11) to go fishing this evening though.

The Ospreys have been swapping over on the nest, taking turns to sit and preen and fly around behind the nest! Here’s a video of 33 doing just that.

Here’s a video of 33 preparing to incubate the eggs.

We know that 33 is very enthusiastic with his nest material, and today he’s brought in something new – two clumps of earth!

What a great addition to the nest they will be! Maya has been rearranging some of the sticks already present, and here are a couple of videos of her on the nest while 33 is incubating. In the first one, he looks unsure as to whether he should stand up or not. In the second one she stands on his tail, which speeds up his decision!

    Thank you for all the updates and clips. It is lovely to see things so settled for them both. I am impressed by 33, proving a worthy successor so far. Looking forward to visiting and seeing them both today.
