5F Seren hatched at nest K, Rutland, from parents Red 08 (m) and Yellow 30 (f). Chris Wood, who volunteers at the Rutland osprey project, has been following her for at least 7 years to Tanji Marsh in the Gambia. She has been at this nest with Dylan since 2020, after suffering abandonment by bigamist Aran at Pont Croesor.
Dylan is unringed, he's been breeding at this nest since 2016, when he ousted dear Dai Dot.

The chicks have been ringed this morning - early on, just the one showed us a ring - 553.
It didn't take long for a parent to return:
IMAGICAT | LG DAILY OBS
Camera back on - Ringing complete. I'll update this with the data when John publishes it.
UPDATE John has said it went very smoothly - he will provide the details around 12.30-100.
In reply to AG:
Bringing forward your info re FISH, AG, then I'm packing up - and looking forward to seeing all the chicks' blings later.
AG said:A US paper someone posted a link to said a nest needed to average 4 fish per day to be confident of successfully getting youngsters to fledging. Dylan has produced 143 fish in June, an average of 4.8 per day.
In reply to patily:
At 20:00 changeove - I think we can be sure that the chicks will be too heavy with water to fledge today
AG said:13.45 all new bling on show as Dylan delivers a large, live and kicking brown trout.
Everyone got fed as much or as little as they wanted:

In reply to scylla:
A very narrow escape!
This is the best view of the partial breakfast Perch I can get:
Can't tell what Seren brought in - as you can see, there's a huge rain blob on the lens:
Everyone has been soaking wet for hours!
John Williams reported on chat this morning that nine fish were brought to the nest yesterday!
