In the last month we have seen our osprey family leave their summer home, one by one.

The unique cries of insistent young ospreys demanding food has been replaced by the calls of greylag and canada geese muffled by rustling leaves jostling in the breeze. Red squirrels are now taking centre stage, with tufted ducks vying with goosander and grebe for attention on the loch. A statue-like heron hunts in the shallows whilst a cormorant stands on a rock at the promentory, eyeing the choppy water with wings half spread. Beautiful in every season, Lowes is gently moving into autumn.

How quickly the seasons are changing but here’s a reminder of the heady days of summer at Loch of the Lowes.
