I would like to apologise for the absence of blog yesterday – there was some confusion over who was posting it. Hopefully now we have resolved this issue and the blog will be coming to you daily by either myself, Jonathon or one of the staff based here in our absence.
The blog will be coming to you this afternoon by 4pm as normal.
Please find yesterday’s blog below:
Events from the nest today:
Both resident male and female ospreys have been on and off the nest today. At 12.54pm 7Y, brought a fish to the nest which our resident female then flew off with.
It is great to see our male and female back together. Last year 7Y proved to be a fantastic mate, taking over feeding duties during our female’s bout of ill health.
Other wildlife at Loch of the Lowes:
Today around 100 sand martins could be seen in the skies from the Crannog Hide; a fantastic site in the morning. Two great crested grebes could be seen out on the loch, along with a male goosander.
On the feeders, we have again sighted a yellowhammer, great spotted woodpeckers and chaffinches. Also, at around 9am this morning, there was an appearance from a red squirrel. Without a close up view, we could not tell if it was the female spotted on Thursday.
We will keep you all updated with any further news from the nest and other wildlife here at Loch of the Lowes.
