Ms Quickly has us thinking about the language of birds:
Fledgling Ospreys, as father arrives with a trout:
About time too.
We’re jolly hungry –
your fishing is getting slack.
How d’you think we’re going to
reach Africa on these short rations?
If that’s all the thanks I get, I’m off.
Time you did your own fishing.
You can find the dramatic pictures from the Forestry Commission nestcam in Kielder Forest here. I didn’t like to use them without permission, and in any case the Osprey blog is a fabulous record of three nests this year, worth more than a mere click to find it.
