From little 'fluff balls' to almost fully grown ospreys, LR1 and LR2 are doing amazingly well all thanks to the fantastic ongoing care from NC0 and Laddie (LM12). Not only have we seen Laddie providing fish for his family but NC0 has been successful several times just recently as well - what first-class parents they are! There continues to be the occasional intrusion from ospreys passing through, however, the nest and chicks have been protected outstandingly. We look forward to the next exciting phase in the young ospreys' development.

  • Thanks Sandra for the new thread, excellent intro and for all your dedication to this nest.
  • In reply to Karen:

    You're more than welcome, Karen. Thank you for your kind words 

  • In reply to Sandra :

    Super start to the month, thank you, SANDRA

    This was the scene not long ago - well, there were 2 younguns there as well but they got cut off in the interest of art

    NC0 has flown now, it's daycam and one of the kids is up preening and the other is crouched over, engrossed in some mystery activity.
