We have definitely seen an improvement in the weather today! Still a wee bit windy, but much sunnier and warmer! 33 brought in a little fish at about 09:00 this morning, and I waited as usual for the moment when he would deliver it to Maya. However, he didn’t!
When 33 left the T-perch I was pretty certain he had eaten it all, as he had been wiping his bill on the perch to clean it of fish residue. However, I held onto a bit of hope that he had a tiny bit left…Maya looked around expectantly when he left the perch, and he came flying towards the nest, but he arrived with not a scrap!
Later in the evening, 33 redeemed himself by catching a large roach, and this time he did bring it to Maya!
Copthill school near Stamford visited Lyndon last month with their year one pupils, and they followed this up by inviting the team to do a whole school assembly, which they did yesterday. After the assembly the team worked with the reception class and read them our story book ‘Ozzie’s Migration’. On their way through the school the team were delighted to see the artwork that had been done after the year one’s visit to Lyndon.
You may recall the picture of the superb Osprey cake… this cake was made by Jan Warren, to celebrate the Osprey Club of Whissendine School near Oakham. The school have been holding this Osprey Club as an after-school activity, and members of the Osprey team have visited several times and joined in. Yesterday was the last meeting, hence the cakes, and they went down very well!
