Osprey diary 16th August

Update: Many of will have noticed our dear dad perched on a tree a while ago and dive for a fish. He duly caught said fish and has gone off to have his tea. Neither of the chicks have been seen today but Dad still being around is a good indication that at least one of the chicks is still hanging around. We’ll keep our eyes and ears open!

Good morning bloggers near and far!

The heat and blue skies of yesterday have left us and been replaced by grey, but as of yet, no rain.
No sign of any ospreys this morning, at least not by us staff. I will however be spending a fair amount of time out in the hide in search of our flying friends. We are all pondering whether they have decided to follow mum or are still hanging about, just out of sight? Only time will tell.
As in years gone by, we will continue to see a number of ospreys over the loch right up until mid September, with young and experienced birds alike heading south from northern climes. We can only speculate as to their identity, but I like to think that our remaining 3 birds will hang about as long as they can to watch over their loch, and bide us a fond farewell we we’re not watching!

Keep a weather eye on the horizon; that osprey passing overhead could be a familiar friend!
