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.
