  • Incredible captures KAREN and incredible helicoptering Can't believe one of them is at that stage already

    When I saw them on the nest about 5 minutes I was thinking to myself how amazed I am that the chicks have grown tiny wee bobbles to these magnificent individuals

    A minute later......all pancaked down What was the danger? Another osprey?

  • Thanks Patily and likewise, I can hardly believe that these four beautiful young ospreys hatched 6 weeks ago! Amazing how quickly they grow!

    And two great captures you have posted of The Fantastic Four!
  • I think Rutland are trying to make some adjustments to the cams.   It would be wonderful if we could see more sky for those chicks are getting up to some height now!

    I expect it will take some fiddling about adjusting the two cams so we'll just have to be patient while they work on them.

  • WOW,

    and next time, even higher going out of sight !!
