osprey progress

The two chicks are doing remarkable well, the male bird brought in two fish within a couple of hours of each other today. Two little heads on wobbly necks reached up to mum for a good feed on both occasions.

ITV came to film at the centre today and we will be on Border ITV News about the Tweed Vallley Osprey Project.

The Herons still have two chicks, the parent bird was there on the nest but we have not witnessed the chicks being fed. One of the chicks from an earlier nest has been found dead and there was no flesh on the bird , it appeared to have starved.
A difficult season for the herons.

The blue tits are still doing very well and are growing fast.
