This was one of my last posts on the very sad 2019 Season which is a summary of what happened.
All we can hope for is that the unringed female returns and also the male KR3 she was bonding with last season. There is still a little part of me that hopes to see the return of Green BF though.

Darren has posted a tribute to Green BF on the Balgavies Loch Facebook Page
The loss of both EJ and Green BF has been a blow this season. All we can hope for is a better season next year.
A lovely post by Darren and his wife.
Some wonderful photos of Green BF from Darren - Green BF was such a great provider, watched him bring in a good few fish.
Farewell dear Green BF, you did good son! the really sad thing is the not knowing what happened to him, we never get closure. One little part of me cannot let go so next year in the Balgavies hide I will be waiting for a miracle!

It is great to see all the threads already started by everyone for the various projects/nests, lets hope all our pairs arrive home safely and it is a good season for them all.

I am sure Jim the Warden will let Darren know if there are any sightings of Ospreys on the nest.
More and more places are closing now, it is certainly a dark time we are living in now
Take Care and stay safe everyone.
No news from Balgavies yet sadly.
I was over in Fife before lockdown and did venture out to Guardbridge and the Eden Estuary in the hope of maybe seeing an early arrival of Blue YD, but no luck I am afraid, that's not to say he is not back.
This is the only drawback of lockdown, not being able to go to places that do not have webcams to look for Ospreys arriving back.
I was just thinking about them the other day. As Darren says "could it get any worse" …….. - well actually it could :-) if no Ospreys arrive that would be worse.

OMG I am so excited - At least there is one Osprey on the Balgavies nest tonight. This day has been one to remember, so many returnees cannot keep track of them.
