Nest 2 – some visuals!

As well as a technical issue preventing uploading of images earlier the adults on Nest 2 have stood in the way most of the time the two chicks should have been visible.

Fortunately Mrs 37 did need a comfort break mid morning.

37 brought what seemed to be a tail end of a fish to the nest at 09.58. The chicks could be seen getting ready for some calories.

37 went to try and help Mrs 37 fill two mouths but she stuck her ground so he flew off.

Soon after 14.00 a much larger specimen was well received by the family. Although 37 stood watching Mrs 37 eat a few mouthfuls then feed the chicks in exactly the wrong place for viewers!

He did move and the video shows a few morsels being eaten as 37 flew away.

Only three minutes later Mrs 37 alerted.

No osprey flew into view although shadows raced across the sky – 37 seeing off the intruder, perhaps.

More about an intruder on Nest 1 today in another post later.
