31st March – A New Rival for Lady

At 4.25pm this afternoon a female osprey arrived at the nest and a ripple of excitement immediately washed over the staff, volunteers and visitors at the reserve. Following detailed reviews of the footage we can confirm that it is not the veteran female “Lady” but is a new unidentified female. Her initial arrival went unnoticed by our male who had not been seen on the loch for several hours, so she took a few short flights around the nest to survey her new surroundings. She has quickly settled in despite being met at first with some hostility from the male. He has since been busy delivering large sticks and moss clumps to her at the nest, and we have witnessed multiple successful matings already.
