This morning ( ca. 07:41 ) was a third osprey around the nest and Ivo jumped at his Lady. It looked possessively, that is my Lady, go away.

10:06 Ivo brought a very big and complicated branch to the nest and got stuck with the branch between his legs.
10:06 The large stick
Image


08:08 another mating attempt - no good
09:35 another one, no good
10:08 another attempt, did not work


Nest work (performed by Ivo):
05:21 a stick delivered
05:56 another one
06:25 a large stick
06:43 another stick
07:36 another stick
07:46 a tree bark
10:06 the large stick

:book:
So the statistics from 04:56 to 10:08 = 7 futile mating attempts; 8 nest material deliveries, all successful :laugh:
