Confirmed the Ospreys have chicks or chick, the wee wobbly white head/heads were obscured by the female and the male at times. He seems fascinated by the arrival of the chick/chicks and from his nest perch looks on with parental interest. While I was watching another osprey caught my eye I quickly looked at the nest and the two residents were still there! trouble brewing? well it was not one osprey but two! and one was stalling in the wind as they do over water but this was over trees!! when the stalling and circling bird was about a kilometre from the nest the male was off and making it clear by his high pitched shree shree calls that the "tree inspectors" were not welcome, they took the hint. Ospreys do nest in loose colonies but I guess it must be a tolerated distance away. Heard willow warbler, sedge warbler, chiffchaff, whitethroat wren, saw and heard blackie and a corn bunting, I was really out for marsh harriers and did I see any? No 12 July, confirmed the Ospreys had two juvs, no sign of the male, but the female had a fish on the nest rim and the juvs had been fed and were snoozing. I was really out for marsh harriers and did I see any? No
