We are delighted to announce that this evening at Loch of the Lowes our first osprey egg of 2015 was laid! Only 10 minutes before the event did our night watch staff first notice the classic signs of egg laying behaviour, including the female tail lifting and panting. At 20:50 she finally stood up to reveal her beautiful new egg! Despite a little hesitation at the beginning, she settled down to incubate happily at 21:10, and as I write she is taking a well-deserved nap whilst sitting on her first egg of the season.

We are now looking forward to witnessing how the parental techniques of our new pairing develop over the coming days and hope you enjoy watching the story unfold with us on our webcam.
