This year the ospreys at Foulshaw Moss nature reserve have built their nest with a very deep cup, making it very hard to spot the eggs on the nest webcam. Thanks to our legion of avid watchers, one was eventually spotted on 19th April. We can't be 100% certain that the egg was laid on 15th April, but that day there was certainly a change in behaviour; Blue 35 started looking very broody and they took it in turns to sit on the nest.
Diligent searching of the footage by our volunteer George has eventually produced some good footage showing 2 more eggs being born over the next few days. He has produced 3 great HD videos showing the birds tending their nest, which are below.
This first video has some beautiful views of the nature reserve in spring, and shows them building up their nest, as well as visits from other ospreys. One of these has a ring, showing it to be the male nesting at nearby Roudsea Wood.
