This will be a concise posting. Today my hair will be getting a makeover for the first time since November – or was it August of 2020?
There is great news. Tiny Little (aka Little Bob) on the Foulshaw Moss took her second flight at 13:34 on 21 August. Polly Turner caught the action:
Earlier, around 8:20, Tiny Little’s crop was concave, as it is in the picture above. White YW landed on the nest with a stick. Stayed a couple of seconds and flew to land on the top of the parent tree in the background. Tiny Little got antsy. You could just feel that she wanted to fly, too.
Congratulations, Tiny Little! Let’s get those wings to working hard before you have to start your migration.
Ferris Akel has posted the highlights for his 17 July tour. Here is that link:
In other Osprey news, Osprey House in Brisbane, Australia had their first hatch on 14:58 on 20 July and their second hatch at 7:05:54. That is only forty hours apart. Well done. There is no streaming cam, but they do have a FB page if you are interested.
Thank you for popping in and joining me. Have a wonderful day. I will be back with a full report of the nests early this evening.
Thank you to the Cumbrian Wildlife Trust and Foulshaw Moss Osprey Nest for their streaming cam, where I grabbed my screenshots.
