Wildlife Diary Monday 18th March

By Lindsey, Wildlife Interpretation Officer

We’ve had our first Osprey visitor to the nest today, an unringed bird landed very briefly on the nest before flying off again. After reviewing the footage we think it was a male and suspect it was one of the Scandinavian birds heading further north but without a ring we can’t know for sure.

The satellite tracking data for Blue YD is in and shows he’s ventured away from his favourite spot on the river and back to the coast, will he stay there now the adult birds are migrating or will  he return to ‘his’ bend in the river? We’ll find out soon.

For our webcam viewers we still have some ongoing maintenance with the camera, including the sound. Our volunteer camera technician will be working on these over the next wee while and hope to get them sorted soon, in the meantime thank you for your patience.

Talking of thank yous our satellite tracking fundraising appeal is almost at the half way point with a fantastic £1,600 but we still have a way to go. If you would like to support us in our appeal then please donate now by going to:
