Thank you all for your interest in our fundraising campaign to raise money to satellite track our juvenile osprey chicks, and thank you to everyone who has kindly donated via the centre or via Toby Greens website at http://www.justgiving.com/Toby-Green.
As you will all know Toby made a superhuman effort in cycling the length of the UK and raised over £4,000 for this project.
We had made enquiries regarding getting the tracking done this year, though it appeared unlikely to happen due to the short timescale.
Due to the recent amazing, sad, mournful, depressing, fantastic, wonderful, uplifting, hopeful events we will now definitely NOT be tracking or ringing any chicks this year.
I think we, you, and our ospreys have quite enough drama to contend with already!
We would hate to jeopardise any recovery ( we hope) of our female by any extra interference to the nest at this crucial stage.
However, we will definately still be satellite tagging chicks- next years brood at Loch of the Lowes all things being well. All your money will go directly to this important and fascinating scientific research at Lowes.
I also just wanted to say how amazed, and thankful SWT continue to be at the comments of support from all corners of the globe at this stressful time.
