It’s been a soggy week for the Manton Bay chicks so we are glad to see they are all looking well!
The chicks are sleeping, preening, wing stretching and flapping far more often than previous weeks. In 2-3 weeks time they should be strong enough to make their first flight from the nest under Maya’s watchful eye.
This afternoon there were fish deliveries and more nest exploring. At around 3 pm we saw 33 and Maya mantling while the chicks close to the nest floor. There was an intruding osprey, and it was incredible to watch the Manton Bay pair working together.
Keep an eye on the fabulous parental teamwork and fantastic fours flapping on our webcam!
