This morning you will notice our male osprey sitting on the eggs once again. After a slow start last week, when he seemed not to know what to do with the egg when first laid, he now seems very keen to incubate indeed. In fact he’s been sitting sometimes for up to two hours, whilst the female has been off eating, exercising, and we think, fishing for herself. This has prompted not a few jokes about him being a ‘stay at home husband’ and a ‘sensitive new age man’. He certainly seems to be taking his role as co-parent seriously which is a relief.
Remember to post your own observations of the days behaviour below.
