Ospreys are back

There have been a few Ospreys about at loch of lowes the past week and yesterday the resident female returned for a staggering 22nd year.  Unfortunately last year they failed to produce any chicks so fingers crossed for this year.  I went along yesterday evening and spent time watching the male osprey and an intruding Red Kite, the female was away scoffing on a fish.  The male Osprey is not her mate from the past two years, but he may well yet turn up and a battle may well ensue for the females affection.

The last four photos are of a Red Kite

I love ospreys! We have them near where we live. When my children were young we used to take guesses as to when they would return in the spring.
