Wildlife Diary Wednesday 9th May

[Just a wee note this morning to say thanks to our tech boffins for getting the Scottish Wildlife Trust website back online!]

Although a relatively quiet day on the osprey nest yesterday, we did have a couple of fish deliveries – our male has come a long way from his inital reluctant gifts in April – whilst the young male also allowed the female some respite from incubation by spending most of the sunny morning incubating himself, from 4am to 8:30am.  Our female spent her off-time hovering over Craiglush, so it is possible she has been doing a little fishing for herself.

It was pretty busy at the feeders, with a number of red squirrels trying their very best to pose for photos and our usual crew of great spotted woodpeckers, yellowhammers, siskins, finches and tits keeping everyone amused.

Some of you may have noticed some re-runs appearing on the webcam (!) – following the HD cam fix on the 5th, it appears our usual playback system is streaming to the the live feed.  We do have another, less intrusive system, so we still have lots of fantastic videos available at the centre – just ask and we can do a re-run of footage from the past few years.
