Today marks the probable half way point in our ospreys incubation period, and after three weeks of 24hr nest protection watch, all is well on the nest- though staff and volunteers are a little bug eyed with weariness!
Despite cold, snow , wind and rain we’ve enjoyed the privilege of watching the birds behaviour and ensuring their saftey- especially the quiet and magical dawn and dusk shifts.
A huge thank you to all the staff and volunteers who had given generously of their time to do osprey watch so far – I’m sure you’ll aggree its a vital task.
Lastly we’d like to say thanks for all your words of encouragement and appreciation on the blog- its been wonderful to get such immediate feedback and we’ve taken your comments to heart. I can’t tell you how much fun we’ve had reading your comments and the laughter they’ve given us.
Your postings about the birds behaviour have also been a great help- we can check these against our own on-site diary, but vitally they also provide a resource for other online users to check what’s been happening- keep up the great work!
