What a glorious day, midges in small numbers but not a pest.
Numbers were down on yesterday and we put that down to the end of the school holiday. Total visitor numbers for the day were 103 and, as usual, from all over the country and showing an intense interest in our ospreys. What a joy it is to be involved in this project.
For the day’s osprey activities we observed the male/female changeover on the nest and the turning of the eggs (yes, I did say eggs, no chicks yet) several times during the day. In the afternoon we were privy to an osprey flight in the distance, possibly towards the Bakethin area and a buzzard flight on two occasions. The picture in the Boat Inn disappeared late afternoon and failed to be reinstated. The joys of technology!!
