Day 23

Assuming our calculations are correct, this is day 23 of incubation.  Things remain calm at the nest which is good news as there nothing significant to report.  Ospreys are individuals, this is plain to see with this pair, as the nest is adorned with things ranging from  decking, to plastic, to cow manure…our male is a collector!  One thing the birds do seem to dislike are the cows….unlike last years pair.  This couple take exception to the animals grazing too close below the nest….really all individuals they must be.
