Another very wet and windy day today, hopefully tomorrow will be brighter! Maya and 33(11) have spent most of the day sitting together on the leaning perch, occasionally one or the other visited the nest, but it was hard to see them through the raindrops!
The pair had a successful mating attempt, all good practise for next year! 33(11) went on a fishing trip but came back with nothing. This isn’t the best weather for fishing, the waves make visibility difficult.
Today I have been looking through the monitoring forms to find out how many fish have been caught by the Manton Bay Ospreys so far this season, and what species they were. The results were as follows: sixty-four fish were caught in total, twenty-nine of them were trout, fifteen were roach, eighteen were unknown (sometimes it can be difficult to tell!), one pike and one perch. This shows that there is a great variety of fish available to the Ospreys, with trout being the most common.
