At this time of year there are many ospreys travelling through the country, both returning to their nest or establishing new nesting sites. This means we often see an increase in ospreys making a play for the nest and “dive bombing” any osprey sat on the nest.
NC0 appears to be getting comfortable on the nest at Loch of the Lowes, and on at least three occasions has stood her ground against, what we believe to be, female ospreys making a play for the nest. It is difficult to determine if these incidences are the same bird or multiple different birds as the intruding osprey appears to be un-ringed. As the incidences are often very short we are unable to identify whether this is LF15 or another bird.
We’ve pulled together this footage from around 5pm 30th March and slowed it down. Who do you think it is? Has LF15 returned??
