More flying practice from Blue YZ today, this time she’s been practising her fish hover where she spots fish whilst in flight and hovers over them before striking. She’s not gone for the strike yet but it can’t be far off. There’s been three Brown Trout today and on two occasions the female has taken them for herself rather than leaving them for the chick. This could be the first signs of her preparing for migration.
Yesterday I told you about our female having a bath and the female and male attacking a Heron. The incredibly generous Steve Earle has once again shared his photos with us and, as a picture can say far more than words, the rest of the blog is devoted to his photos of these two fascinating events. Steve came up especially today to give us these photos as they were on their way home to Leeds so, Steve from all of us here at Loch of the Lowes huge thank you.
