17:02 camtime
Both ospreys are on the nest,busy doing nestorations. M has left now.
17:05 F is still busy arranging the nestbowl.

17:15 M returns,attempts at mating. Unsuccessful. F said 'Ger off me" and gave him a 'look'.

17:18 M flies off,a moment later F flies off too.

17:22 Back at the nest..
17:29 Osprey still on the nest just looking around. (hasn't turned so I could see the breast feathers..
17:31 Male arrived,brief mating.

18:10 Female (Dark Lady, no rings) is chirping, male flies to branch or ? up above, then jumps down onto her back.

Image

Image


18:13 Male flies off the nest. Female stays and preens.

18:21 Females sees someone coming and chirps. Male lands on her back, and she bends a little but nor much, and does not raise her tail all the way. The male stays on a few more seconds this time.

Image

Image


In the last two attempted matings, when the male jumps down, he does not assume a submissive posture - he raises his wings and turns back toward the female ... that is different!

Female flies UP and male arranges things in the nest bowl.
