Eggs for Easter!

Hi Folks,
Hot off the press (or the TV screen!) our female osprey has just laid her 2nd egg of the season. It was laid at around 15.30 this afternoon (Monday 25th April). This is around 60 hours after the first which is normal for ospreys.

Unusually our male bird has taken quite a fancy to incubating the eggs!! This is considered the females role.

We will keep you posted over the next few days.



  1. Great stuff; is there a hide for viewing ?

  2. Hello,
    Unfortunately we are unable to offer a hide to view the ospreys, however we do have live CCTV viewing of them at the David Marshall Lodge Visitor Centre in Aberfoyle.
