Apr 15th by Ian under Bird Watching

On the 10th April the female Osprey was sitting on the nest cup, so in the last week she has laid an egg and is now incubating. I did see that the male has a left leg ring so my assumption is that the male is as last year. Buzzard was mewing above me, great spotteds were loudly "cheeping" and a lone willow warbler was singing away. At the time of watching the male had a fish, on a fence post in sight of the nest, well eaten, when I spotted him, again the tail end. I saw him later at the nest site presumably with the same fish eating the "leftovers", she still content on the nest. So must assume she is well fed. No sign of Marsh harriers, time yet.
