Wildlife Diary Friday 29th June

Rain, Rain and more rain….but some sunny spells too, what an odd day at Loch of the Lowes!

Our Osprey chick is now so large it doesn’t fit under mum and looks quite comical trying to shelter beneath her in the downpours. Despite the difficult conditions, the male has brought in a wee pike and a perch so far today.

 A couple of answers about questions: please do feel free to send your Osprey questions to ospreys@swt.org.uk. I am sorry I cannot answer each and every email personally- there are dozens each week- but I will answer your questions on the blog here for all to share.

I will be publishing a list of all the questions asked so far this season next week so you can catch up- and these will be added to our FAQ tab at the top of this page.

 Have you ever tried Twitter? Did you know we also have a twitter account, which is a text news service you can subscribe to? Simple go to the Twitter website and search for @SWTLowesRanger  and click “Follow”. Don’t worry if you don’t use Twitter- all the news will still appear here too, but if you like osprey news from Loch of the Lowes ( and other similar sites in the UK) direct to your phone, this might be for you!

 Lastly, don’t forget if you want something fun to do with the kids this weekend, why not come along this Saturday 30th  June  to  our

BIG BUG HUNT at Loch of the Lowes

There will be two sessions: 11am-1pm and 1.30-3.30pm- come to either!

Join the search for weird and wonderful wee beasties around the reserve – catch them and get up close and microscopic! Help create a huge bug hotel and make a mini one to take home too. Lots of creative messy fun, for kids and adults alike.

Cost: VC admission (free to members) plus £2 per child – adults free! Suitable for all ages, but children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
