Update from SWT-Blog:
Egg-cellent Easter!

It is great to see both ospreys back on the nest! LM12 and LF15 have been very busy since LM15’s return on Thursday.

Ready and Waiting - 13 April 2018:
Our male osprey, LM12, has been kept busy these past few days trying to get our female, LF15, in peak condition for laying eggs. In the past 24 hours alone he’s brought in four fish, gaining the attention of a buzzard and some carrion crow – but they were no match for our pair! On top of ensuring LF15 is well fed, our male has been bringing more nesting material to the now sizable nest, while the female creates a deep bowl in the middle for the arrival of some eggs (hopefully!) in the coming days. The good news from Lowes is that the number of intruding Ospreys has reduced significantly, letting our pair relax and prepare to lay and incubate some eggs. It’s now 15 days since the arrival of LM12 and the first successful mating attempt- so we have our fingers and toes crossed that the first egg will be laid within the next few days.

Growing egg-citement!

We’re delighted to announce that LF15 has laid her second egg of the season, close to three days since the first.

The second egg came at around 11:30 on Monday night. Our Ranger Rachael Hunter managed to capture some great close up footage from our webcam.

So, taking all that into account, we are predicting that the first egg will hatch on the 21st of May in the morning, the second on the 22nd of May in the morning and the third on the in the afternoon.

The time for egg hatching is fast approaching, and our Osprey pair have been patiently attending to their three eggs. As of today – 17th May – we are on day 34!

skyllabub posted a video showing a week bob 2 having difficulties to stand up in that deep bowl:

Bobbles end up with a KO

But scrolling back ~ 1h 20min on the current Live Stream you can see that both bobs got fed well & postings on today's RSPB-Blog page 18 have noticed the same:
A lovely feeding session for both chicks finished a short time ago, #2 fell into a food coma before the end of it.
