With chicks growing rapidly there has not been much space to think about No 14 and how he is faring. As you can see he has felt no urge to return to his natal site. Instead he has followed a pattern similar to other juvenile ospreys in that he has a main area of interest – in this case South Lakes- and from there he makes trips out to other favoured spots. This sequence maximises the chance of his finding a nest site, a fishing ground and a lady friend. Two major hurdles are firstly, finding these factors all in one place and, crucially, winning the approval of the lady. Despite being a super flyer and unsurpassed traveller, or perhaps because of it, it does not look as if he has succeeded in settling down this season.
