The following clips captured some moments from the first 24 hours for the first addition to the osprey family at Middle Farms.

MAY 29, 2024. Shortly before this clip, the male osprey delivered fish and the female flew off with it. The clip begins with the male getting up and squawking, eventually movement can be seen in the bowl and when the mother returns, both parents watch the egg hatching together.
