Change of Focus

No more ospreys were seen on live camera for 2 weeks after the 28th, when we last seen our own ospreys. Ospreys were still reported locally fishing on lochs but I was surprised we didn't see any ospreys on camera, as you normally get visitors from further north stopping off on their migration south.
For those who are still interested in following something, the 3 chicks from Loch Garten have been satellite trakced and can be followed via the RSPB website:

While here at the lodge our focus now changes to the mammal population: Red Squirrels and hopefully Pine Marten. Last year Pine Marten appeared every second day on our feeders during Oct and Nov and hopefully this year will be the same. Red Squirrels are nearly always seen on live camera and on Sun 4th Oct we have a Red Squirrel fun day here at the lodge. On sat 4th and 11th we have trips to see the Red Deer rut.
