Nele, took her fish for a spin and is back. She just wanted every Osprey to see her prize. :laugh:

Hi, Olga! :D
Summi, please, I hope that the chicks don’t leave us till the end of August, or first week in September. :unsure:
I’m not ready to wish them farewell.

Seirra, thanks for all of the pictures and observations from this morning! So happy to see you!! :)

Aita, great videos!

Bea, thanks for explaining the, talon lock, that Nele had yesterday morning.

Hellem, thanks for the Fish count, every day! Ivo is a hard working dad, and the family is blessed to have Iiris, helping out. These chicks have been fed very well indeed. :2thumbsup:

It was not so bad 8-) Pilvi didn't even bite him, just waived her wings a bit in Ivo's direction after which he left. :laugh: He is used to rough and 'ungrateful' handling by the teenage osprets..

Took out the pic, because balistar already posted it.

Haha! :rotf:
That is the moment, I spoke of.
Ivo is an untiring father,
he doesn’t mind his kids biting his toes off, bumping him, screamingly at him...
An amazing example of fatherhood! :thumbs:

Oh, yes. Mart is something! I think we saw his “heroic” streak for the first time
when Urmas was ringing the osprets. Since then, Mart has become more and more
an osprey on which one “cannot step on”. :mrgreen:
He regularly puts his sisters in their proper places.

Plus, he has become such a hungry bird! I think they counted five fish that he ate yesterday... :shock:

(I know there are several opinions, but to me, Mart is smallie.
He has grown and come back with a vengeance!) :laugh:
