Osprey Diary 5th August

Good morning bloggers,  from the team at Lowes. We are all wondering here, if today is the day we’ve all been dreading – the day our female osprey leaves on migration. She has not been seen since 10am yesterday, and if we don’t see her on the nest or loch today we can assume she has headed south. So keen eyes out today folks- let us know if you see her. Of course this is normal and natural this time of year but none the less we will all be sad to see her go- especially as many of us have lingering doubts as to whether or not we will see her here again.

Meanwhile the male is delivering fish and Rinchen tells me these are noticeably bigger in size these days. This is a great sign that the chicks are now able handle  fish themselves ( perhaps the parents are deliberately challenging them with bigger prey? ) as well as a compliment to dads fishing skills.
