We were blessed with another beautiful day today, the sort where you never want to see the sun go down. The sun has been out all day, and the reservoir has been as still and calm as a millpond. Here is the view from the Lyndon Centre today.
It’s great to see all the wild flowers beginning to bloom in the meadows – outside the Centre the cow-slips are looking fantastic.
It’s been a hot day on the nest today though, and both Ospreys have been panting as they sit in an attempt to cool down, and at one point during the day Maya went for a dip in the reservoir.
The pair have swapped over several times to incubate the eggs, and here’s another video of a change-over! I just love the little wobble they do to get comfortable when they first sit down.
Here is a video of Maya flying around during one of her breaks from incubation.
Later on, around half past four, 33 went fishing. It was a very short trip, and it was a very small fish! He ate his share and brought the rest to Maya, and in five minutes the fish was gone! This wasn’t the only fish of the day though, 33 brought one in this morning at about half past seven.
For some reason the video of 33 delivering the fish failed to work, but here is a video of Maya on the T-perch eating it.
So altogether another very settled day. Long may it continue!
