New arrival 33(11) has been causing trouble today for the Manton Bay pair. He was around yesterday, and by late afternoon it was thought he had gotten the message and disappeared. However, today he is back, and 28 is having difficulty in getting rid of him!
John took some brilliant photographs yesterday, including some great close-ups of 28 and 33, and a lovely sequence of images showing 28 bringing in a small bream and Maya taking it away to eat. Enjoy…
33 appears to be a very fiesty young male. Hopefully, he will eventually take the hint that this nest is not available!
Here are some photographs taken by John a couple of days ago, of 28 with a pike. This helps to demonstrate the variety of fish that are available to the Ospreys in Rutland Water. In the last week we have seen bream, roach and pike.
