It sure looks like they are doing well and with 4! I am guessing lots of fish available?

Honestly, these might be the absolutely best osprey screen captures I have ever seen, partially because there are 4 and partially because of the camera, and partially because the moment and totally because they just are.

Four lined up waiting to eat,
making their opinions loud and clear,
Dad or mom says I have a fish right here,
just wait, stay lined up and you will get.....
your turn.

It’s been a miserable week all around Rutland water, and we’ve been watching Maya and her brood closely to make sure they’re managing ok in this weather. Osprey chicks are sturdy birds however, and seem to be growing well still despite all the wet weather and wind.

This morning, 33 brought back a large fish to the nest and this was welcomed by a very eager Maya and the chicks, whom she fed for almost an hour! As per usual, the three eldest siblings rushed in to get their fill, and then lay down with full crops, leaving the fourth chick complete access to the food source, and got a good full meal.

Hopefully the weather will improve over the weekend!

Early this morning Lloyd our field officer and other staff members set out for the Manton Bay nest. The mission was to ring our fantastic four! All chicks were adorned with a grey BTO ring, and a blue coloured ring.

We now have the latest Osprey additions: 054, 055, 056 and 057! Of the four chicks, two are female (now with ring 054 and 057) and two males (ring 055 and 056). 054 being the first to hatch and 057 being the fourth chick to hatch.

The three musketeers fledge! - By Marie Dipple on July 5, 2019
A beautiful sunny morning at Manton Bay, the waters still as a mirror, not a cloud in the sky.. a perfect stage set for the possibility of flight..

It had been a very busy morning, parents Maya and 33 flying back to the nest more frequently to check on the two fledglings 055 and 054, who fledged on wednesday and thursday this week. 054, the oldest chick, appears to be the most confident and curious of all our chicks. We might start to recruit her as a nest camera technician, as you’ll see from the video she’s got a keen eye for technology!

054 flew off the nest and went and sat on the camera perch for a little while, making her siblings more restless to do the same. 055 soon made the decision to get up and about for the morning too, flapping his strong wings into the air and taking off.

Soon, 054 left her perch in front of the camera and joined her brother in short flights around Manton Bay, along with Maya and 33, occasionally perching in the fallen tree behind the nest. It was a beautiful morning, and 056 and 057 stayed preening and relaxing in their newly spacious nest, able to spread their wings out fully with two less feathery siblings nearby.

With a few encouraging return visits from Maya and 33, 056 began to show signs of restlessness too, and at approximately 7.15am, the moment arrived, our second male Osprey left the nest! An emotional moment, as the three musketeers were reunited in the air again, leaving the youngest rogue to her own devices once again!

Blogs - Scrapping for food!

By Libby Smith on August 16, 2019

The food begging from all four fledglings continues, when 33 brings in fish, there are tussles between the youngsters. Yesterday 056 and 057 were scrapping over a large trout.
