Thursday updates

At 07.45 this morning 33 returned from fishing with this huge roach! Maya promptly relieved him of it and all of the chicks stood up in anticipation of getting a good feed. However then no-one seemed to know quite what to do and we thought maybe the sheer size of the fish was just too overwhelming! However all became clear a few minutes later that Maya did not want to share as she proceeded to eat most of the fish herself!

Shortly afterwards all 6 members of the family were together again as 33 returned to the nest to mantle as there was another intrusion in the bay from one of the unpaired males from the area.

The sun has finally started to shine again here in Rutland and in particular Saturday is looking like a scorcher! At the time of writing there are still a few places left on our evening Osprey cruise so book now before they get snapped up!

    For anyone that missed it, PLEASE could you post the ospreys’ reaction to the ducks’ regimental ‘swimpast’ at 15:14 – 15:16 on Saturday 29th June? It was priceless!
