Update: Our Apologies for webcam problems again this morning- we are having problems with our broadband internet connections. Thanks for your patience.
Moist spider webs are everywhere! Whether it rains or just in the early morning dew. Every late summer/early autumn I am amazed at just how many constructive arachnids there are! They all thrive on the wealth of insects, day and night.
We had a bat and moth talk/walk last evening. There was a fine cross section of keen individuals. Oddly, there were not as many pipistrelles and daubentons bats as we had hoped, but all of us did “hear” a few. Bat detectors are cool. We all learned a plenty, from massive fruit bats to thimble sized mammals…
Being out last evening allowed us to see what I am quite certain was one of “our” juveniles return to roost in one of its’ favourite perching locations. I had seen three ospreys yesterday morning whilst doing a census of the birds on the loch. One of those birds also perched on a well used branch. I wonder, are “our” young still nearby, honing their skills before venturing off? Over the past years, this is about the time that the young leave. I will continue to be vigilant with overviews of the area and keep you updated.
There is always something fresh here, there and everywhere at; the Loch of the Lowes. Rinchen
