Babies are about to fledge. Yesterday during my visit, I watched as they flapped and lifted a foot or so above the nest. At each of my visits Mama has always been perched keeping a watchful eye on her young and Papa is generally off fishing or sitting comfortable on his chair.
Yesterday I noticed two Osprey flying close together, I wondered if, now that the babies are larger, did mom and dad go to dinner together. But I observed the larger bird flying under and seemingly pushing the smaller one up into the currents. I wondered if I was watching a flying lesson??
