Osprey diary 29th

Good morning bloggers,

It’s another pleasant day here at Lowes and all seems well on the nest. There was a fish delivery just a short while ago and, yup you guessed it, greedy guts got in there first! Chick no.2 really needs to start growing up and fighting for itself, and mum needs to let it! Lady is due to leave by the end of next week and she seems to be on a mission to eat as much as possible to gain the strength she needs, which is a good sign she is ready to leave. Her progress would be better if she didn’t have all these intruders harassing her and the chicks, but a mother’s work is never done and she will defend her young and home to the very last.

We are all savouring these moments however, as we all know, this very well could be Lady’s last year and we will applaud her every little victory, the last being here final(?) migration.
