    Presumably it could be any left leg blue ring bird. Last one I saw there with a blue ring that I could read was on 19 August when CN2 was present and fishing. We quite often get kielder birds in I suspect as we are only 40 ish miles away. Remember not everyone knows what each Osprey is called, some of us only go by the ring numbers when we can read them

  • Understood, thanks. I’m referring to JJ2 from Loch Arkaig as she only left nest recently. I let my enthusiasm at your sighting a left leg blue ring run away with me. Sorry about that.
