Wildlife Diary Saturday 9th June

Osprey update: There’s been no fish for seven hours which is unusual but she’s not shouting and the chick seems happy and well fed. Our chick now has the classic Osprey eye stripe and is looking very healthy. We had some drama this morning when an intruder Osprey actually landed on the nest, it was only there briefly before it left hotly pursued by our male. He did show his clumsy side again today when he brought in a clump of grass and almost landed on the chick and later on brought in a stick and put it down on the chick’s back.

In other news the Great Spotted Woodpecker and her chicks and the Red Squirrels have all been at the feeders today. We discovered Wrens nesting just above our porch and we’ve been watching them busily go back and forward with food so there must some hungry chicks in there.

Our pair of Great Crested Grebe seem to have spent most of the day asleep on or near their nest, nice for some!
