The nervous waiting continues here at Loch of the Lowes as we watch for any sign of our Ospreys arrival from spring migration. It has been wonderful hearing the sightings from further south gradually increase over the last week and the sense of anticipation is building.
As is so often the case some of the Welsh and Rutland Water birds were first back to their traditional nests, followed last night by EJ, the breeding female at Loch Garten. Historically this birds timings and those of your our female Lady, have been very similar, so this gives us hope that we may not have to wait too much longer!
Our birds have arrived as early as the 15th March and as late as the 12th of April so we are not yet worried as arrivals from now are still well within normal parameters.
However, we are itching for our first glimpse of an osprey here at Loch of the Lowes and of course we hope that it will be our favorite bird- the legendary Lady.
We will of course be watching the loch and the nest very carefully during the next few days and weeks- our wonderful volunteer and staff team are in the hides all daylight hours, and the webcam too is being monitored at night now , so as soon as we have any news, you will hear it!
