00 is making herself at home!

After spending the afternoon with 5R yesterday, 00(09) has certainly been making herself at home. As a 2009 chick, 00 returned to Rutland for the first time last year on May 4th and we only saw her a few times during the whole season. Her return was early for a two year old and her even earlier return this year is a very encouraging sign. She has spent most of the morning food begging and moving sticks around the nest and 5R doesn’t seem to mind! Last year the Manton Bay female arrived on March 28th so we are expecting her back any day now. It will be interesting to see how she reacts to the new Manton Bay resident.
