Odds and ends

Nest 2 are into the last few days of incubation. Both adults are bringing in nest material. 37 in particular is out to impress.

EB had flown out of the way when she saw 37 coming!

Nest 1 is still receiving visits from YA. Although Nests 1 and 1A aren’t within line of sight of each other from the platforms when an osprey is flying around YA will sometimes be able to see it. Yesterday he landed on Nest 1 and mantled and shouted at something above.

Here is a link to the video of Nest 3 yesterday. It concentrates on the new hatchling being cared for by the male. Note how carefully he (and the female) walk around near the chick, not just the eggs.
