Our ospreys have been kept on their toes today with an intruder osprey flying close to their nest. On one occasion the male became very agitated and on arriving back at the nest (while the female took to the wing) he trampled around knocking clumps of moss on top of the eggs. Witnessing this rough, unusual behaviour made uncomfortable viewing and we were all relieved when the next opportunity to see the eggs showed they were safe and intact.
Tomorrow (Sunday 24th April) we are delighted to have Donald from Opticron here at Lowes with a large range of binoculars and scopes.
Are you thinking of buying a pair of binoculars? Perhaps your first pair … or upgrading to a better quality? Have you every used a spotter scope to watch wildlife? Not sure which to buy and have loads of questions? Well, now’s your chance!
Come along to Loch of the Lowes between 10am-4pm and try out the different models with Donald at your side to answer your questions.
Remember, if you are a Scottish Wildlife Trust member you will receive a 10% discount on your purchase.
