The osprey diary today is no not so much about our Lowes birds, who haven’t been seen on the Loch at all in the last 24hrs, probably having started their autumn migratory wanderings. Other local birds, however, are still around, and reports are coming in thick and fast of osprey beings spotted travelling through. I myself saw an adult osprey fishing at another of our reserves, Stormont Loch, yesterday which doesn’t have a breeding pair, which just shows it is worth keeping an eye out in all sorts of local waters.
Our webcams are still plagued by technical problems- how grateful are we that this didn’t happen in the middle of the osprey season!!! Most of you will sympathise with the endless contradictory answers we’ve been getting and the ‘on hold’ phone queues we’ve been enduring trying to sort out the problem, which now appears to be phone line and electricity related. Our sincere apologies for the lack of visuals and we assure you are not missing a great deal on the nest- just the sad sight of grass growing on it now there is no one home!
