The eldest chick is two weeks old today and the feathers are just starting to come into 'pin'. All three offspring seem to be flourishing and are feeding well - mostly Mullet and Sea trout (mainly esturine 'slobs'). The weather has been kind also with no excessive heat which can kill young ospreys but the wind can be a problem; the eldest chick started venturing to the side of the nest yesterday all by him/her self. Accordingly, both parents have increased their stick gathering forays in an attempt to build up the sides of the nest.
The remains of three fish surrounding Mum and chicks in the nest this morning somewhat resembling a sushi bar! Thankfully, food has not been a limiting factor to date.
