Countdown begins

This blog was originally written Monday 25th May

Two adult ospreys were at the nest this morning and there appeared to be a little alarm displayed by one of the birds (possibly Mrs O?). She flew off leaving the other adult sitting on the perch on the left-hand side. One egg was clearly visible but the other two could not be seen; We are hoping that is just because of the camera angle and the eggs are safely obscured by the twigs at the front of the nest.

Mrs O returned swiftly and landed beside the egg, appearing a little unsettled and agitated. She was flicking her wings and gazing skywards.

The eggs are due to hatch any time from today onwards , so it will be worth checking the live camera over the next few days for some happy news.
