GLASLYN OSPREYS - AUGUST 2019

  • According to the United Kingdom Ospreys website, KC1 is a male hatched in Welsh nest ON4. He was on the nest between 13h09 and 13h17. The camera froze before his arrival so the first view we get is of KC1 standing on the right side of the nest. He spent some time looking around. Something made him fly off at 13h17  but he returned and landed on the perch. He stood there for a few second and flew off, being chased by one of the residents but it was so fast I couldn't see who.

    He's a stunning bird! Another intrusion today, an unringed juvenile though, landed on the nest at LotL this morning :)

  • It's interesting to see that juvies go and explore and it's really great when they end up in a nest with a webcam. It makes me wonder if KA4 and KA0 have already visited other nests.

    Here are some more snaps of when KC1 left. He flew past the tree in the background.

    He landed on the perch.

    He spotted someone...

    ...and flew off...

    ... immediately followed by one of the residents who chased it away.
