Yet another wet day for the Glaslyn Ospreys today, thankfully Aran caught a medium sized mullet before the never ending drizzle set in for the day. The chicks were hungry this morning and watched eagerly as Aran circled above the nest with their meal. The mullet served as a second meal a few hours later

There was an intruding osprey in the nest area this evening. Mrs G chipped and took flight from the nest to the top of an adjacent conifer. After scanning the area with one of our cameras an osprey was sighted in a tree some distance away. This tree was used many times by 5F last year, could it have been her? Unfortunately we are unable to confirm the ID of this intruder.

At just after 9am this morning Aran delivered a Garfish to the nest. A predatory fish they feed on Mackerel and will follow shoals into shallower water to feed. Aran caught both Garfish and Mackerel during 2015.
Mrs G took charge quickly, dragging the fish to the side of the nest, dead or alive those teeth will be sharp.
The chicks waited patiently and then accepted the pieces of flesh offered by Mrs G, so no problem there.
This afternoon at 4 15pm Aran delivered a trout and the chicks were fed again. Heavy rain fell at 5pm, Mrs G tried to shield her chicks as best she could.The youngsters are growing at a fantastic rate now thanks to Aran's regular fish deliveries.
