Sunshine, thank you. These soft pink colour shades and Ivo kicking the ground make the photos special. :D

Kerfuffle on the nest - a third osprey involved!

I think it was a second female, with a metal ring only

First the current unringed female comes over from the dead tree, then Ivo lands on the nest, making his submissive gestures* and then a third osprey with metal ring on right leg lands. Current unringed female beats it off the nest.

* because of this I think the stranger was a female

What's going on in this nest this year? :slap:
Has Ivo changed his perfume so that all females come to this nest?

All...except Irma. :unsure:
She's still well in the window of time but I'm getting restless.
In view of the other ladies. :rolleyes:

@ You, who have a control of happenings at this nest

When did the "older" lady vanish from the scene? :puzzled:
The osprey with only right leg metal ringed can mean an osprey born in Finland ...

I am convinced that it is only fish blood - he wouldn't move that smoothly, digging the nest, if his leg was not ok.
The red color is less than yesterday - and will be less and less as much as he fishes and dives in water :thumbs:

In 2014 Ima arrived on April 24th, but I too am losing hope for her return this year. She is getting on in years. Her first year on this nest was 2013, and if she was at least 3 years old then, she would be at least 9 years old now.
Perhaps she decided she has raised enough babies, and stayed in Africa.
