Osprey Diary 9th June

The PC has crashed again folks, very sorry for the interruption, we are working on it and hopefully be back with you soon. Thanks for letting us know!

Another wet morning at Lowes but our male osprey has already brought in two fish- well done sir!
Our chicks are changing so quickly, growing like mad and developing early pin feathers. It seems always to be their heads that get feathered first, and the two youngsters already have a teenage ospreys distinctive brownish faces with the comical ‘zoro’ bandit masks- the classic black eyestripe they will have as adults.
There is no doubt, as Fiona mentioned yesterday, that this year the two chicks have had the best possible start in life , thanks to their parents skills and dedication- we are amazed every year anew at the ospreys tender and attentive parenting techinques. They have also been very lucky with the weather, with glorious sunshine and warmth just when they were smallest and most vulnerable to cold . Lets hope their luck holds, and the nest three weeks are as successful.
