Wildlife Diary 26th April

It’s been a very quiet day on both the nest and the loch with very little to be seen on the water. It’s very windy here today and anyone watching the webcam will have seen it shoogling regularly as the tree was buffeted by the wind.

Our male once again fished in front of the hide grabbing a large pike, he really seems to like them. Again he went in very deep and appeared to be struggling to get out so this seems to be his style of fishing; it’s given us a few hairy moments but now we know this is what he does we can relax, stop worrying and enjoy seeing him in action.  Over an hour later he finally gave her the rest of fish but not before she’d been calling for some time.

We had one of those wonderful Osprey watching moments earlier this morning when he flew into the nest with a large stick and promptly dropped it on her back. He then picked it up and moved around the nest all the while hitting her in the face with his tail feathers, she didn’t seem to mind and it makes a change from her hitting him in the face with her wings!
