New video of Nest 2 feeding time

After several substantial meals already on Monday, the chicks lined up for some of the trout 37 had just brought for tea. Although it is virtually the same size as the elder two, chick 3 does tend to sit slightly behind them although shouts as hard. It is definitely number three in the ‘pecking order’, but still gets a good meal. Watch the highlights of the event here.

    It is amazing how far such little birds can project their poo! Sally

    Joanna, just watched your lovely video of Mrs 37 feeding the chicks. It looks as though she’s feeding them pieces of fish. I thought birds half digested the food for their chicks and regurgitated it. But they seem to thrive on it – they seem to have grown so much in a really short time.

    Ospreys don’t regurgitate food, they just tear off tiny (in theory but some are sizeable mouthfuls!) pieces from the whole fish and offer them to the begging chick. You’re right, the chicks are doing very well. Lots of fish, reasonable weather – osprey chick bliss!
