It has been a while since an update on Nest 3 and there is a big change in the appearance of the chicks. On 4 June chick 2 was still losing its down.
By yesterday both chicks were looking much more like ospreys.
In between, as far as we can tell from limited daily recording, life has progressed relatively smoothly with plenty of food. In this image the female has just arrived back from a bathe.
The male feeds the chicks more often than 37 or YA. Here he has landed with a catch. The female stood and watched as he started to tear bits off for his offspring.
Here is a video with some of the action over the period.
There was an intrusion incident shortly after 15.00 yesterday. The male alarmed and possibly flew off to escort an unseen bird away from the area. Could it have been UV?! His data is likely to arrive quite late today.
