Mrs G helped the little one get the top shell off. Mrs G is the oldest Osprey in Wales and this is her 47th chick. Incredible.
Mrs G isn’t giving much away!
What is a hatch? The folks at Loch of the Lowes were shouting that NC0’s first one had hatched. You could just see it. I could not find a time stamp for the Loch of the Lowes nest but Q1 at the Glaslyn Nest entered the world at 00.08 on 18 May 2021 officially.
Congratulations Aran and Mrs G on your first hatch of the 2021 season.
It was Blue NC0s first hatch ever. Mrs G has laid at least 54 eggs to date and has had 46 chicks hatch and 41 fledge – not counting the 2021 clutch. She has at least 100 grand chicks. She is extremely experienced!
Thanks to the Bywyd Gwyllt Glaslyn Wildlife for their streaming cam! That is where I took my screen shots.
