The Web Cam at Manton Bay Rutland
Manton BayThree well-fed chicks

By Tim on May 22, 2013

If you’ve been watching the webcam today, you’ll know that the three chicks – including this morning’s new arrival – have enjoyed regular feeds throughout the day. After this morning’s Perch, 5R brought a very large Pike to the nest which kept his new family satisfied for much of the afternoon. Although very weak at first, the youngest chick – which only hatched this morning – has grown visibly stronger during the day and is now a match for its siblings at feeding time. Here’s the moment it received its first piece of fish from Mum earlier today; its the furthest left of the three chicks.



It's a good quality Cam

Those are two lovely clips WS, I love the first one of the chicks being fed and mum seemed to be feeding them all equally which was really lovely to see.

All three chicks at Manton Bay Rutland seem to be doing well. There's no sound on this web cam, but I thought I'd try the Zoom capability on the new video
Video 1min 30 secs


Well it works, but I think I zoomed in to much lost the sharpness, still practice makes perfect Very Happy

Good news I could watch it on my laptop so maybe it's my PC that stops at 11 seconds scratch

Thanks for that clip WS. All 3 look really well and ok I have to say it at this stage not the most beautiful birds in all the world What a Face but I am so pleased that they have all survived so far.

Brilliant clip WS,  they are huge now and I love the way they are fed so gently by the parent.

Thanks for the update.

Manton Bay Osprey Chicks ready to fledge
We’re still waiting for the Manton Bay chicks to take their first flights. As they are the oldest of all the Rutland Osprey chicks this year they should be the first to fly
With this lovely hot weather they are most probably feeling as lethargic as the rest of us, this along with the lack of even a gentle breeze will perhaps have put them off today.The young birds will find it easier to make their maiden voyages if there is a bit of wind, it will just give them that extra boost and a bit of a lift once they leave the nest.[/color]
So for now at least, all three remain with their feet firmly on the ground. We might see them get a bit more active later on this afternoon and into the early evening as the temperature drops a little.
5R has been keeping busy and kept them supplied with fish; and the youngsters have been helping themselves whilst the Manton Bay female is away.

I had missed your other updates WS so in a way it's good to know they are still there and we may get to see them fledge yet. As they report though, they must be feeling the heat so wingercing is probably not on their agenda at the moment, far too hot sunny I must try and remember to keep an eye on this cam, I am terrible at forgetting Embarassed
