Unidentified osprey pays a visit to the nest

We’re excited to let you know that within the last two hours an unidentified osprey has paid a visit to our nest.  At around 12.10 pm today, an osprey popped up in view, landing on the nest for a few short minutes before taking off again. 

Unfortunately, as the visit was so brief, we are unable to make a positive ID.  However we are hopeful that it could have been our resident female osprey, known by many as ‘Lady’, because the bird did not appear to have a leg ring. 

As always, we will be watching over the nest and we hope to make a positive identification of any bird which arrives and then proceeds to take ownership of the nest, occupying it for a prolonged period of time.

Please accept our apologies as we ask for your continued patience while we try to fix the HD nest cam.  We’ve been working as hard as we possibly can on this and we hope to get it up and running soon to provide you (and us!) with better quality images from the nest… which would also make identifying the birds  much easier.
