Here is a link to some of the daily happenings on this nest.
Port Lincoln Osprey Observation Board


November 20

2020.11.20 - Here is a sneak peak of some of what we will see once Solly fledges. The reporting will be more accurate once she leaves the barge - so they tell me. I think all the metal might interfere with it a little, but at least we know it is working somewhat.

2020.11.20 - 61 & 60 days old - Dad is in his 'man cave' and spies a stick that he thinks should be on the nest.

2020.11.20 - 61 & 60 days old - Dad delivers a lively fish but Mum lets it slip thru her talons…she was lucky enough to be able to quickly retrieve it and bring it back to the barge to feed Solly & Dew

2020.11.20 61 & 60 days old - I don't think Solly is going to stick with the 'lock down'. She is getting ready to leave home.

2020.11.19 - 60 & 59 days old - Solly is really testing her wings today - think Mum came back to the nest to tell her to be careful of the edge...

November 17

2020.11.17 - 58 & 57 days old - Dew is very busy feeding himself tonight - ate the whole fish.

2020.11.17 - 58 & 57 days old - Dad delivers a fish and Dew takes it and doesn't want to share. He thinks he's got it covered but it is poking out behind him so Solly takes advantage and pinches it from behind.

2020.11.24 - 65 & 64 days old - Solly has finally fledged. Will post videos shortly but here are some photos. We went out just to make sure she hadn't landed in the water on her first flight. Mum has gone off towards the shipyards - probably to catch a fish and entice her back to the nest. Solly is sitting on the roof of the wheelhouse.

2020.11.24 - 65 & 64 days old - Oh to be so brave when taking your first flight to just lift off - but I guess she doesn't have much choice. Hope she doesn't stay away too long.

https://www.facebook.com/portlincolnosp ... 9596595702
2020.11.24 - 65 & 64 days old - And Solly returns - she could be on a high after her first flight - or she could be back to being a bully - or maybe she's trying to convince Dew to take a flight also - will let you be the judge.

2020.11.21 - 62 & 61 days old - When you see Solly & Dew together like this it's hard to believe that they squabble like they do.

Solly makes a perfect landing at the nest 15:36, but behaved again very aggressive against Drew. He has it not easy with his sister.

Calypso has been spotted near Tulka, which is approx 10 kms from the barge. Great to see her looking so good and moving around the area. Thanks for the capture Michael Aird

2020.11.30 - 71 & 70 days old - Solly is testing out the landing spots today. She even spent some time down in Dads' 'manacle' before going for a walk around the deck of the barge.

2020.11.30 - 71 & 70 days old - Don't think it will be too much longer till Dew fledges - just hope it's not tonight!

2020.12.09 - 80 & 79 days old - Solly & Dew are both sitting on top of the mast on the nearby boat. Probably a better vantage point to look for fish - not that they've really tried that as yet.

2020.12.08 - 79 & 78 days old - Dad delivers a fish but Dew thinks it is just for him.

2020.12.08 - 79 & 78 days old - Pay back time - Dew is practicing his lift offs and takes a stick with him - I'm sure it wasn't intentional but he drops it above Solly's head.🤣🤣

2020.12.16 - 87 & 86 days old - Dad brings a fish for Solly but she thinks she is too grown up now to eat in the nest and takes it to the rail to eat.

https://www.facebook.com/portlincolnosp ... 482586780/
2020.12.15 - 86 & 85 days old - Dad eventually lands with a fish, both chicks are hungry. Solly lifts off with it to keep it away from Dew - first time Solly has actually lifted off with a fish - growing up.

2020.12.13 - 84 & 83 days old - Dew decides to inspect Dad's Mancave and then the water that is lying on the floor of the barge.

Calypso news

January 16, 2021

https://www.facebook.com/portlincolnosp ... 6011702060
I hope Calypso, Solly, Dew & Bluey all appreciate the help our Environment Minister has given to all the Ospreys in South Australia. His passion for the environment and wildlife is amazing. Can't wait to see where Solly goes to with her tracker. We know she is visiting 'Delamere' so possibly following Mum & Dad over there to learn how to fish. Need a few of our local photographers so keep an eye out for her.

Mark Wright was lucky enough to watch and photograph Calypso on the foreshore this morning catch and then eat a flounder. It was a bit of a struggle to get it to the beach but she was successful. Thanks for sharing Mark.

Our locals are so lucky to be able to see Calypso catching and eating a fish on the main beach this morning. Thanks for sharing Sarah

I think Calypso is becoming a bit of a 'celebrity' today.
