Early this morning Lloyd our field officer and other staff members set out for the Manton Bay nest. The mission was to ring our fantastic four! All chicks were adorned with a grey BTO ring, and a blue coloured ring. By attaching rings to the birds we are able to gain information on their whereabouts, their age and where they hatched from.
We now have the latest Osprey additions: 054, 055, 056 and 057! Of the four chicks, two are female (now with ring 054 and 057) and two males (ring 055 and 056). 054 being the first to hatch and 057 being the fourth chick to hatch.
They are all healthy and we look forward to seeing them take their first flight in the next few weeks!
