The other juvenile can already be seen in the "perching tree“


Osprey         Kalakotkas       Pandion haliaetus 


This morning a few minutes past eleven o’clock the last young bird in the nest set out to fly. There was no room for landing beside the sibling on the perching tree. So it was a ”sensible” decision to return to the nest after the flying tours.

The young ospreys in the Osprey 2 nest will be two months old in the beginning of August.
