Osprey Excitement!

We are all absolutely delighted to see our first osprey touch down at Loch of the Lowes earlier this afternoon. At a little after 3pm the osprey managed to land on our nest despite the blustery conditions.

It remained on the nest for several minutes allowing us to get a good look at its features, markings and colours in the beautiful sunlight before it left the nest for a nearby lochside perch.  From here, we were able to get a great view of the bird from our scopes and it appeared to be a young male however it seemed to lack the characteristics of our returning male LM12.

After surveying the loch for a few minutes more he headed off in a southwards direction and hasn’t been seen since. There is now a sense of great excitement and anticipation as we keep our eyes on the sky waiting for the next osprey to arrive!! Will it be one of our pair? Stay tuned for updates!

Happy Osprey Season Everyone!!
