33(11) had a very busy day today. He went fishing three times in three hours! Here is a video of his first one – the tiniest fish I have ever seen brought to an Osprey nest! Maya seemed happy enough though.
An hour later, here is 33(11) delivering his second fish of the day, a bit bigger this time!
The third fish arrived at the nest at about 14:20.
Earlier this morning, an intruding Osprey visited Manton Bay. Maya and 33(11) were on the nest mantling, then the camera wobbled as the intruder landed on the perch. He flew off as soon as Maya left the nest to give chase. We didn’t manage to get a ring number unfortunately, but it looked like a male. He could be one of the non-breeding males we know we have around, or he could be another youngster!
Also, check out this photograph of a Kingfisher, taken from Waderscrape Hide by volunteer Martin Lusty. These lovely birds are being seen frequently from the hide recently.
