Today we had an osprey intruder flying close to the nest alarming both the female and the chicks but the chicks instinctively ducked down in the nest and the mother guarded the nest until the intruder left them in peace. Fish have still been brought in regularly to the nest and the male even brought in another eel on Friday making that two eels in a week.

Our chicks are still a bit unsteady and clumsy on their feet but they are healthy and are looking great.
