As the season progresses, Laddie (LM12) continues to make occasional visits to the empty webcam nest, defending his area from passing intruders.  It is hoped that both he and NC0 have a successful nest in the vicinity of the Loch.



21st July  - NC0 made an appearance on the nest, her first visit since 19th April 

24th July  - NC0, confirmed ring identification during a second visit to the nest

10th August  - Laddie's last appearance on the webcam nest > Here and Video by Scylla

20th August  - One chick for Laddie (LM12) and NC0 > successful-first-season-for-loch-of-the-lowes-ospreys

6th September - Probable migration date for Laddie (LM12) and the juvenile was Saturday, 29th August >


  • Thanks Sandra for starting of the new month also for all the links and lovely capture.

    Fingers crossed Laddie and NCO are doing fine and raising young!
  • You missed this yesterday, SANDRA


    It was a fly on the lens.

    Nothing to report up to midnight, except I've had a lot of interruptions due to an update causing picture and video freeze-ups :(

  • Thank You Sandra for starting the thread.    

    Scylla I did see that fly too when I was scrolling through looking for any Laddie visits

    This has taken almost 40 minutes to get to this stage of posting.   

    Written @ 05.59 on Edge browser, wonder why they called it Edge, probably because it puts everyone on edge that uses it.

  • Sorry I missed the fly...! lol 

    Around 11:30 this morning, there was a quick visit from a raven


  • In reply to Sandra :

    19:35 A Raven having a dig around in the nest


  • In reply to Sandra :

    It came back again 20 minutes later, making a right mess!

    It/they continue to be on and off looking for something tasty to eat within the nesting material

    It had an itch on its head so gave it a scratch


  • Hopefully there might be some news in the next couple of weeks on whether there was another nest used this year, or did I miss it.
    Looking forward to next year already and hoping there is a return to this nest.

    Hi Richard, nothing confirmed from Lowes, as far as I'm aware, as to whether another nest around the Loch is actually in use by Laddie and NC0. We can only hope...

  • In reply to Sandra :

    Some of the clips from last night 30 June/01 July were messed up due to that Realtek update.

    Besides the Raven/s (who sure did give the nest a good going over), I got 2 little birdies - I can't focus well enough to distinguish Coat/Great Tit for the first and am relying on RICHARD for the second, tho I have my suspicion ;)
