I don’t want to sound harsh and controversial on these forums, but why is it that there is some strange attachment and sentiment to certain Ospreys by members on the threads in the Loch Garten forums page compared to other birds and wildlife by members in other parts of these forums. It seems quite strange and curious why this happens. And the Osprey threads take over the whole forum so you can easily lose track of other interesting threads. I’m not saying I don’t read the Loch Garten Osprey threads, of which I do from time to time. But there seems quite a strange sentiment attached to certain Ospreys and I do occasionly watch the Loch Garten Osprey nest webcam from time to time. But not enough to get so attached to them like certain members.
One can so easily become absorbed in the progress of birds which are readily available to follow on live webcams year on year plus chatting to & getting to know other like-minded people ... It's addictive!!
