It's hard not to be passionate about Highland Perthshire as a place to live in as well as visit. Hopefully these blogs prove the point!
Well folks, it looks like there is no longer any doubt our beloved female osprey has left on her autumn migration as we haven’t seen her on the loch now since Monday. We all wish her a safe and swift journey to her wintering grounds, and a most welcome return next spring if she’s able. There is every possibility she will make it back to Loch of the Lowes in 2015- is she does it will be a truly remarkable 25 years for her at this nest! What change that 25years has seen- and how far and well the osprey population has recovered in that time too! What a great symbol she is of this conservation success story- truly inspiring I am sure you’ll agree.
We are of course desperately hoping that someone somewhere in the UK (or in France/Spain/Portugal) will spot one of our young ospreys this autumn, such as Blue YD or even Blue 44- they could well be out there so eyes to the skies folks and let us know!
It is always sad when the Scottish osprey season draws to a close , and we all feel a little bereft without our favourite birds, but we can start looking forward to next year now!
