Garry at Perth

Garry at Perth Museum

Yesterday, Loch of the Lowes’ team took part in ‘Go Wild’, a children’s activity with the aim to make children more aware of the Scottish wildlife that can be spotted in Perthshire and in the highlands. The activity was held and organised by Perth Museum.
A good number of children turned up andcame visiting our stand, all enthusiastic to draw ospreys, create osprey masks, meet Garry the Osprey and learn more about the life of an Osprey and Loch of the Lowes. Information was given to their parents about upcoming activities in the reserve.


Today, things were a bit lively at Loch of the Lowes. A Kingfisher was spotted flying next to the Crannog hide, by one of our volunteers. The Osprey fledglings have mastered the art of flying and now they are starting to practice fishing and diving. Two of the fledglings were seen trying to dive but changed their minds at the last second and aborted the dive; a thrilling sight!

Two intruding Ospreys came to the area earlier today, but they were quickly chased off by LM12 and LF15.

And don’t forget that tomorrow afternoon, Hebe Carus from Scottish Wildcat Action will be at Lowes to give a fascinating talk on the plight of one of Scotland’s most endangered mammals and what is being done to save them from extinction.
