BASSENTHWAITE OSPREYS ~ COCKERMOUTH PROBUS CLUB ~
Margaret Ratcliffe presented an interesting talk on ospreys, with particular reference to the Bassenthwaite ospreys. She explained how the resident pair of birds usually arrive within a few days of each other in the spring. However, this year the female bird of the breeding pair did not arrive in time for breeding.
Margaret went on to describe the life cycle of these fascinating birds, which following mating, may produce 2 or 3 eggs. The male bird becomes the sole provider of fish at this time offering a selection from perch, chub and even pike to the incubating female. When the chicks hatch he will bring food every 2- 3 hours. Using photographs, she described how the adults catch the fish just below the surface of the lake using specialised talons. When presenting the prey to the young hatchlings the male eats the head of the fish to prevent larger live fish eating the smaller chicks!

Margaret continued her talk, describing how each year they migrate flying north from Senegal or Gambia. This is monitored using unobtrusive tracking devices attached to each bird. She reported how some of the birds fly a direct path across the Sahara with many birds perishing in the heat. Others do not fly directly to the Lake District but have been tracked in Europe before returning to their usual nesting sites. The talk continued with further references to the life cycle of these most welcome visitors to Bassenthwaite.
Stuart McIlhenny gave a hearty vote of thanks for a very interesting and informative talk about these captivating birds.
