Wildlife Diary August 31st

How can it be the end of August already? This morning is cold and msity here at Lowes, a real taste of autumn, but I’m sure the sunshine will soon burn through! Fionas’ delightful description yesterday gave you a  good tate of the changing wildilfe here at the Lowes- it is perhaps the most beautiful times of year in the highlands.

We’ve had almost daily osprey sightings here at Lowes, of birds  passing through, which is a nice reminder of how many birds are further north than us are breeding. Thankyou to those of you posting details of other ospreys on route in the UK- fascinating reading.

Excellent news this morning about one of our previous ospreys chicks born here at Lowes, which has been sighted in Dumfries andd Galloway. The female chick was hatched here in 2001 and is a daughter of our wonderful lady and her previous mate ‘Eric’. Isn’t it wonderful to think of her descendants out there helping repopulate new areas of Scotland!
