Osprey Family

Not a good year for this particular Osprey family. The last few years the adults have been able to raise three successful juveniles. But this year it has been a different story. They started out with three, but quickly they were down to two. Just when it looked as if the two remaining would survive, it was down to one. I don't have any scientific theory what happened this year, just anecdotal evidence. Each time I saw the adults bring a fish to the nest, they tended to be smaller compared to last few years and much larger time gap between drops. Each season brings different challenges, each year wildlife tries to adapt and make the most of it.

Until next moment,
