It wasn’t quite as sunny at Kielder on Wednesday as the previous day and the wind had a chill edge, but it was still a mainly relaxing one for the ospreys.
On Nest 1 the pair were together on the nest for a time in the morning.
At one point YA was mantling at an overhead threat, but it wasn’t possible to identify what species. In the afternoon the pair were mainly in trees around the nest area, although YA was down on the nest for a bit.
On Nest 2, Mrs 37 was on the nest in the morning and at around 09.30 and 10.30 was mantling at something overhead.
An hour later she was happily eating a fish that 37 had dropped off for her. Having had enough she flew off, leaving the trout on the nest, and 37 landed. But he wasn’t interested in food. He inspected the cup, preened a bit, then lay in the cup just like a female. What a ‘new man’ he is, sharing the parenting experiences!
