With the first egg of the season appearing on Nest 1, despite a rainy spell in the middle of the day it was a wonderful day.
YA did the majority of the incubation in the morning. Mrs YA took over for a spell but then the rain started, and hero YA came down to take over from her.
Later, Mrs YA came back from a nearby perch and YA flew away. Gone for a fish, perhaps? Apparently not, we didn’t see one all day. But Mrs YA stuck to her incubating role.
Meanwhile on Nest 2, no eggs yet. A field trip up there early evening found 37 eating a fish on a branch below the nest. Mrs 37 sat on the camera pole, then came down onto the nest, waiting her turn. Quite magical to see them ‘live’ rather than via a nestcam, great though that is on detail. So a really lovely end to the day for a happy osprey watcher!
