Chicks flying.

Today the osprey family were all away fishing and a cheeky jay was seen at the nest exploring for any scraps or leftovers. Both chicks are now competent at flying and come and go from the nest frequently. The parents regularly bring fish back for the chicks and the youngsters will sometimes wait around for the parents to deliver fresh supplies. Visitors to the Tweed Valley should keep a keen watch out for ospreys flying about in family groups to favoured fishing haunts of lochs and rivers in the area.
