DYFI OSPREY PROJECT – August 2019 to end of February 2020

  • No LIMPY today?!  Be well, Limpy x

    I don't know how you girls recognise the juvies, I cannot tell the difference unless I can see the ring numbers.

    This was the 07:00 flounder from Monty, it was the first fish of the day - posting it because I snapped it before checking what was here already - anyway it shows it was a nice big one:

    Some was eaten but most of it got left on the nest for ages:

    Until someone came along and carted it away, squawking:

    Monty with another flounder, as described by ALISON:

    You just missed the zoomer's arrival, Alison

    Berthyn with Monty's flounder:

    As recorded by ALISON, Hesgyn tugged Telyn's toe instead of the fish.

    Just in case this is her last day, we never know:

    Hesgyn made good progress with the flounder, keeping a watchful eye open:

    There was a sunny breakthru while this osp was chilling out there:

    Same bird or not?

    It can only be a parent or Peris, as Berthyn is on the nest waiting for Hesgyn's leftover - she'd already pulled some old fish out of the nest material but it wasn't fit to eat:

    Got it!

    Once the nest was vacated the usual scavengers arrived:

    Someone out there again:

    Then a gap where I let the download go past the limit.

    Then Hesgyn and Berthyn hanging out again:

    Telyn got blow'd up 'n down with fish for Berthyn:

    But it got there OK ;)

    As did Hesgyn:

    While the cam was zoomed in, Berthyn flew off with this much left:

    Hesgyn waited on the nest while someone was eating a fish out there:

    Monty brought a small fish for Hesgyn, got his leg pulled but not for too long:

    Then Telyn brought a flapping fish for Berthyn, no toe-hold this time:

    But Telyn had great trouble letting go of the fish:

    456

    Hsgyn had been on the birch perch with a tailend, he flew to the nest in time for Monty's supper fish:

    Hesgyn was too full to eat but that didn't stop him defending the fish from no-one ;)

    It started pouring with rain, with drops bouncing up from underneath the cam, then first Berthyn then Hesgyn flew with their fish - and someone followed Hesgyn from the berch perch:

    I wonder if that was Peris, not seen since morning?  Was this him picking at scraps later?

    He actually ate this!

    And this?

    And probably it's the same bird back after nightcam, hoping in vain:

  • Good morning - I was late starting the stream but a youngster was on the nest @ 06:00:

    It flew...

    ... around to the perch, if it was the same one:

    Then back to the nest:

    And off again like a shot!

    No-one in sight at the mo.

    G'night.

  • ENS but glancing at chat I see that 9 fish were brought to the nest yesterday 5 from Monty and 4 from Telyn They will certainly be going on migration well fuelled
  • Telyn just delivered a fish ...not sure who the recipient is?

    EDIT. It was Peris who was waiting, now Monty has turned up with a part eaten large fish. No other youngsters  arriving!

    Birdies LG DU update.
