It was a very quiet day on the nest with no intruders or twig waving shenanigans, there were a few changeovers and the usual egg turning. After calling for sometime he eventually brought her the remains of a large fish just before 5pm, we think it was Trout but she’d whipped it away so quickly we didn’t get a good look.
The dog Otter was seen again early this morning delighting the osprey watch volunteers and making one very happy as he’s been trying to see it for six years! The Great Crested Grebe have been continuing to display to each other and there was a territory dispute between the Canada Geese involving a lot of honking.
We had two interesting visits today: one from a Napier University postgraduate group studying Wildlife Biology and Protected Areas resulting in some good discussions about managing sites and protected species; and another from Mr and Mrs Lowes who came all the way from Holland just to visit their name sake.
