This is an osprey video.

From Wildlife Extra:

July 2010. Nature’s answer to ‘Supermum’, a 24-year-old osprey famed as the oldest breeding bird of its kind to be recorded in the UK, has exceeded the expectations of experts by surviving this year’s breeding season to see that her latest chicks successfully take their first flight from the nest.

Extraordinary longevity

Ospreys live an average of eight years and are estimated to produce 20 eggs during that time. The lifespan and reproductive abilities of this individual osprey are considered ‘remarkable’ by wildlife experts, especially as a month ago she appeared to be at deaths door.
