Late on Sunday YA brought another large rainbow trout to Nest 1.
This one didn’t move so after YA had flown off would the youngsters cope better than the last time there was a whole but twitching fish? This is what they tried.
As the older osprey VY might have been expected to do better than go for the tail!
Nothing worked for them until Mrs YA came down to give them a start. Then VY decided she would take over.
VY took some modest bites for a few minutes before VP got in there!
After half an hour Mrs YA took over and tore off much larger pieces for the pair.
Although less exciting than the jumping and wing strengthening work that is going on the ability to tackle whole fish also needs to be honed.
