Let $N = \{ (z_0,z_1,z_2) \in S^5 \mid z_0^3+z_1^3+z_2^3 = 0 \}$, where we consider $S^5\subset\mathbb{C}^3$. The circle $U(1)$ acts on $N$ by $$e^{i\theta} \cdot (z_0,z_1,z_2) = (e^{i\theta}z_0,e^{i\theta}z_1,e^{i\theta}z_2) ,$$ and the quotient $E = N/U(1)$ is an elliptic curve in $S^5/U(1) = \mathbb{C}P^2$.

The resulting bundle $N \to E$ is just the restriction of the Hopf bundle to the elliptic curve $E$.

How can I calculate the first Chern class of this bundle?

I'm told the answer is $-3$, which I believe must have something to do with $$f(e^{i\theta}\cdot(z_0,z_1,z_2)) = e^{3i\theta} f(z_0,z_1,z_2) ,$$ which is suggestive of a map $S^1\to S^1$ of degree 3 (I'm writing $f$ for the polynomial defining the elliptic curve).
