During our round the clock osprey watch we are lucky to be treated to some stunning scenery and other interesting wildlife sightings, as well as our fantastic views of the ospreys. Last night whilst on night shift, Vanessa one of our Species Protection Officers was lucky enough to witness all of the above;

“The prelude to today was a wonderfully still moonlight night, speckled with stars. It was amazingly peaceful during the night with sporadic calls from tawny owls, geese, gulls and lapwings. Meanwhile our female osprey LF15 slept quietly on the nest incubating her clutch of 3 eggs, waking to turn them occasionally throughout the night. Mirror-like reflections continued as dawn broke to the sound of a wren, great tits and robins joined by chaffinches and a very loud drumming woodpecker. Our male also returned to take over incubation and relieve his partner and on the loch, a grebe, some goldeneye, a pair of mute swans, mallards and finally some black headed gulls completed a stunning early morning.”
