Unfortunately, this nest was abandoned by the Osprey pair several months ago. The pair still use it as a roost, but the amount of nesting material has diminished significantly and I haven't seen either bird sitting in the nest for several months.
Beautiful sunny late winter's day. Female very briefly left the nest unattended, but was back within a couple of minutes. Male took over nesting duties when she left again. Day 25.
11 August - both adults sitting. Observed female passing fish over to male. Day 21!
Haven't seen the nest unattended in four visits to the nest in the last eight days. Observed male bringing large fish (minus head) to female, and then watched the male do the sitting duties while the female ate.
Observed male and female Osprey exchanging places on the nest.
