Nice to see you, to see you...

Well the nest was very quiet until midday when the unringed female appeared with the green ringed male and mating took place; more successfully than yesterday. The unringed female was food soliciting and the male kept flying off but was unsure as to what to do. So he returned with some moss and dried grass. Good boy!

Then at 2pm, the unringed female landed on the nest and was immediately chased off by another bird. A quick zoom revealed it was Red 6A! Welcome back our resident female, living up to her reputation of not standing for interlopers on her nest. :-)


  1. So glad to hear that the ospreys have finally arrived :-)
    I've been following the highs and lows of the Loch Garten and Loch of the Lowes ospreys and not to mention the Mull White Tailed Sea Eagles, these birds are magnificent.
    Hope you get the webcam up and running soon so I can get a glimpse of these birds and follow there progress.
    Keep up the good work and hope to see you soon.

  2. Thank you fiona13!
    The webcam is getting worked on as we speak. :-)
