5R fishing in Manton Bay

If you’ve been watching the webcam in recent days you’ll know there are now two eggs in the nest. The female laid the second on Monday morning so make sure you keep a close eye on the webcam in the next day or so – a third could be imminent.

In recent days 5R has focussed his fishing attempts in Manton Bay. At this time of year pike are spawning in the shallows near Waderscrape and Shallow Water hides  – making them easy pickings for a hunting Osprey. This means that if you visit the Lyndon reserve over the Easter weekend you have a great chance of seeing 5R in action. Yesterday Dave Cole recorded this fantastic footage of 5R catching a pike in front of Shallow Water hide.
