Mandarin Duck at Loch of the Lowes – Update

We were contacted last month by the owner of a stolen Mandarin duck. We were sorry to learn today that this pet duck has died. We offered as much assistance as we could after a Mandarin duck was spotted at the reserve, including offering to catch it at the feeding station. Unfortunately the duck moved on from the reserve before this was possible.
 
Ospreys are a Schedule One protected species under the Wildlife and Countryside Act and any disturbance to our breeding pair of birds could be a criminal offence. We are therefore unable to allow anyone to access to the loch while the nest is occupied.
