Bad news: Last night the third and smallest chick started to deteriorate, and this morning it was clear that it had died. The third chick hatched two days after its youngest sibling, which made it obviously smaller than the older two. Despite this all three chicks seemed to be doing really well and Maya was feeding each equally.

Things started to change when, yesterday afternoon 33 delivered a rather large clump of hay, Maya had already delivered a few clumps herself. However, this last clump swallowed up two of the chicks and for a while they were not visible. Later on 33 brought in a fish, this seemed to spur the chicks on, first it was the bigger one that managed to pop his head out from the hay for a feed, then a few moments later the smallest chick just about managed to break free.

However, this was not enough, the two stranded chicks were now stuck on the other side of the nest, away from the nest cup and Mayas warmth. The bigger chick valiantly battled his way through the hay and fortunately his larger size and strength seemed to help and eventually he ended up back under Maya.

The smaller chick was not so lucky, he put up a good fight trying to make his way back to the nest cup, but unfortunately did not make it. The chick was left out from under Maya for the rest of the night, although we had a warm day the night was cold and windy, meaning that the chick would have quickly cooled without Maya’s warmth.

The osprey team monitored the chick overnight and by morning it was clear the chick was dead and there was no action that could help without putting the remaining chicks at risk. It’s a real setback for Manton Bay and upsetting when you see the loss of a chick you’ve been watching for weeks, but on the positive side we still have two healthy chicks, both of which are looking very well fed!

:hi: Ferenz,

I only realized today that there are only two chicks left. :blush:
Two days ago, I thought I was wrong, and I just imagined it. :slap:
This year, everything that can happen is happening.
It's like it's bewitched.

Rutland, Manton Bay UK: Osprey Tracking

By Anya Wicikowski on August 31, 2018


Down in Manton Bay things are exceedingly quiet, we still have the two adult birds but no sign of any of the chicks. Elsewhere it looks as though Rutland birds are starting to leave the UK on their own migrations back to their wintering grounds. We will soon be updating you on 30s’ progress as she starts her fifth migration with a satellite tag! What an incredible bird!

On the subject of migration and satellite tags we have some very exciting news, a couple of weeks ago two of the finest osprey experts in the country, Roy Dennis and Tim Mackrill, both from the Roy Dennis Wildlife Foundation came down to Rutland to fit satellite trackers onto two birds. With the help of our own Lloyd Park, two male ospreys were selected: 4K(13) and S1(15), both of which have been holding territory but were unable to attract females this year....

The two birds selected for tags this year were S1(15) you should recognise him, as he is a Manton Bay chick, who first returned in 2017, and 4K(13) who is from a site on private land and first returned to Rutland in 2015.

Osprey Tracking:

In fact S1 the youngest bird has already set off on his migration! At 14:00 on the 25th of August he left the UK crossing the English Channel between Brighton and Newhaven. By 17:00 he was in France. After what must have been a tiring crossing he stopped off overnight in woodland just east of Le Havre, in just one day he managed to clock up an amazing 377.98 km.

On the 26th S1 continued his travels south, not stopping until he found another large piece of woodland east of Tours, and rested there overnight. The next morning he was back in skies, by now he must have been getting hungry, he only covered just less than 100 km before he found himself a nice lake north of Le Blanc to catch some dinner and rest up.

Rutland-Manton Bay, UK:

Osprey Tracking S 1(15) By Anya Wicikowski on August 31, 2018

The break and food did its trick, as the next day he was off like a rocket, he made his way south-west towards the coastline and the Gironde estuary, a popular spot for migrating birds. S1 then continued on towards Arcachon Bay, stopping only when he found a large spot of woodland to the south-east of the bay.

Osprey Tracking:

The next day S1 headed back towards the coastline, it looks as though he could have then used the coastline as a guide, as he follows it straight down until he reached the Pyrenees. From here he headed south east, and on the 30th of August passed over Madrid. Our last update from S1 showed him just south Madrid, over the past 5 days he has covered an amazing 1535.78 km. It’s really intriguing to see where he will end up; at this point in time it doesn’t look as though he is heading for Portugal, where some Rutland birds have been spotted over wintering, so most likely he is heading down to West Africa, just like 30.

Fingers crossed, that all goes well on their ways to the south.
