Osprey Diary August 15, 2010

Light shrouds of mist in the basin as I came to work, heavy dew on meadow, and a wren singing its’ heart, and of course mine…

It has been clearing as I have done my chores and now the loch is crystal clear and quiet, save for the occasional groaning of great crested grebe and the quacking of mallards. It feels as if it will be a bright warm day. We shall see. This is Scotland, on an island…

I pondered at the end of yesterday the whereabouts of  juvie 1. I do not believe that we have seen two juvies at one time since Friday. They were flying over the Loch. So, at present I can only conject, which I am sometimes uncomfortable. Has “our” greedy juvie started to fish? Is it fishing and has drifted off? I will note that the timing may be within the range for fishing, and we do know that this bird can eat and is aggressive in action. However it seems rather early for the bird to have flown away. The other juvie has been feeding well in its’ siblings absence.

So, we will be diligent about our observations today, as ever.

Enjoy your moments of sight, sound and touch today. Rinchen
