Osprey Friends,

How about introducing the link to the Osprey nest in the archipilago ouside Turku (Åbo) in Finland.

Wonderful location, and bird incubating three eggs.

:wave:

sorry I haven´t much time, then I this time just will tell that both Ospreys were very active in the early afternoon today - 13-14.30 when I had a bit time for looking. Several mating attempts and even a few that looked succesfull. It looked sometimes as if the male (ringed right leg) was excercing landings on the back of the female - and sometimes as if the strong wind did it impossible for him to make a proper mating. Also new nestmaterial was brought to nest.

:offtobed:

Yes, indeed, totally new! The behaviour .... matings and mating attemps .... fish for food :)

But shouldn`t they really going to lay an egg now ..... facing all the matings they did the last days ???
Although some didn´t look very successful .... but there surely were some .... :puzzled:

I have no idea how the nest should look when "ready", but they don't seem to bring hardly any moss, grass, hay or other "soft" material, mostly bark and lichen. :puzzled:

When I opened the camera a ringed osprey was at home. He did some warm up exercises and a halfhearted attempt to work at the nest.
Some minutes later the nest was empty.

14:15, when I opened the cam, a not ringed female osprey was in the nest; she took a nap.
14:24 Male osprey, ringed, landed
14:27 Mating attempt, then the male left the nest
14:30 Male landed again at the nest, maybe with a small prey, I couldn´t see that. Both worked a bit at the nest
14:35 Male left the nest
14:38 Female left the nest. I closed the cam at 14:40

It was very windy today. Several times I heard noises which sounded like gunshots.

15:13 I opened the cam; female osprey without rings alone in the nest, preening her feathers
15:20 She´s looking around attentive
15:25 Preening
15:30 Shower of rain
15:34 I heard the first cuckoo this year
15:35 She called, another osprey swooped down on her. This time, unless I´m very much mistaken, it was a mating.
He started straight from her back and disappeard
15:37 The ringed male landet in the nest
15:39 Both preened their feathers
15:40 He is looking around, she is “talking to him” and still preening
15:44 He leaves, she is preening
15:52 Greeting calls from the female – the male landed and brought a huge piece of tree bark.
She started to “shred” it while she was talking all the time
15:56 He left the nest, and she stopped talking and working
16:00 When I closed the cam she was still alone in the nest

Stormy weather

15:35 Mating
