This morning one of the chicks ZY was feeding on the nest from 10.30am in the pouring rain. The soggy conditions didn’t seem to affect her enjoyment of todays flounder! Yesterday we saw both chicks on the nest at various times and on Tuesday both the male and female were seen in the afternoon fishing off Saltcot merse. ZY has just left some of the flounder on the nest and flew off (just before 12noon), obviously not that hungry today. Hopefully they will soon join their parents out on the Solway. I had a report yesterday of another osprey feeding in Loch Kindar to the west of us at the foot of Criffel. Birds are on the move.
