Three in a nest and the little one said …

It’s not often that we see three birds in the nest at this time of year but earlier today the Manton Bay female, 9F and 8F were all in the nest together briefly. In fact we’re lucky to still have the whole Manton Bay family in Rutland. Over half of the Rutland Ospreys have now begun their migration down to West Africa.

Manton Bay female, 8F & 9F on the nest this morning

5R is evidently not in any great hurry for his offspring to leave yet as he is still supplying them with fish; like this one which he dropped off for 9F this morning.
