The Lyndon Visitor Centre and Nature Reserve have now been open just short of a week. It has been really lovely to be able to welcome back visitors, have a peek of the Manton Bay nest from the Waderscrape Hide and catch up with some familiar faces who have popped in.
For the Manton Bay Ospreys, it is like nothing has changed. The Ospreys are completely oblivious to the fact there are visitors now watching them from the hides and have continued to put on a performance for us all.
The chicks are between 6-7 weeks old and the oldest chicks have been having a go at helicoptering – temporary lift off from the nest. Even 083, the youngest chick, has begun flapping his wings.
