Osprey Diary August 8, 2010

…a warm & muggy morn…in contrast to last nights’ blazing sunset with “Sir” presiding majestically from atop a pine…

This morning I was greeted by “our”  male on the same perch high above the loch. I have mentioned behaviour and patterns over the many weeks. The male perchs close to the nest now. He has been afar for weeks, save for his reliable fish drops. Yes, to me, he looks majestic. He is in his prime.

I have noted in reply to a couple of comments that the young no longer require as much food as they did 4-6 weeks ago. Do you remember how rapidly they grew during their flight feather stage? The large fish now delivered are serving the juvies well. They will start to catch over the next week or two, I am confident of that.

At the Visitors Centre over the past few days I have noticed beaming smiles by young and not so young. People knowing that “our” female is on her way.

I send a smile to you. Rinchen
