What a hot day it has been! The chicks have spent a lot of time facing into the wind today to attempt to stay cool in the scorching heat! Most of their activity occurred during the cooler hours early this morning. They have all been doing a lot more wing flapping, and are getting more and more enthusiastic about it! They’ve even started attempting a few little jumps now!
It’s great to see the chicks moving around the nest and getting interested in everything around them. They are so naturally inquisitive, and their instincts to nest build are clearly strong – they have been moving sticks and bits of nest material around again today!
33 delivered a fish at about 10:30, which kept them going all day as it was another huge one! He went to the T-perch with it again, and ate the head before bringing it to the nest.
It was so big they couldn’t eat it all, so 33 came back for it later. Then he brought it back again, of course!
He also brought in a stick or two…
All in all, it’s been a fairly quiet day on the Osprey front – there is not much point in them doing too much in this heat! It’s supposed to be cooler tomorrow, so they will have a more comfortable day.
