Phew. After a very long and frustrating wait, the ospreys at last have chicks. Twins. Here they are in the nest with mum. Given how hard they were to see in the nest, and how low down they were, I can’t help wondering whether they were already there last week. They don’t have that fluffy ‘I’ve just hatched’ look about them, do they?
Here’s mum (on the left) and dad (head just showing) in the nest.

It’s nearly Christmas and, like everyone else, I’ve got a busy list of things to fit into the next week. However, some of them will just have to wait as I will be going to visit the nest regularly and trying to get more pictures.
