LOCH ARKAIG - AUGUST 2020 TO FEBRUARY 2021. Highlights are Mary GK's and Geemeff's wonderful videos of the 2020 season

  • Well, this is quite a clamjamfry of osps

  • 15.51, Aila, JJ6 & JJ7 are on the nest when Louis brings in a fish. At 15.53, Louis is still on the nest with the fish, the other three are fish calling as if he wasn't there! Ian

    EDIT - 15.58, Louis decides to start on the fish. 16.00, Aila takes the fish, any bets that she will feed one or both the chicks like yesterday with JJ6?

    EDIT1 - Aila is indeed holding mouthfulls of fish to JJ6 but he is too busy shouting to take them! Eventually (just to please his Mum) he takes some from her.

  • Mummy's oldest baby being fed, aw shucks (not). Ian

    EDIT - 16.19 & 16.21, JJ7 and JJ6 leave respectively. I think Aila has finished the fish, she is on the nest still at 16.36. I'm going offline for the rest of the day.

    Definition of clamjamfry. 1 chiefly Scottish : rabble, mob. 2 chiefly Scottish : odds and ends, rubbish.

  • I'm glad to see Vera on the nest, yelling. I hope her wish is fulfilled.

  • Thanks for pics and updates, they are certainly ready for the big migration. I expect Aila will be off soon.

  • Seven fish were delivered to the nest today, and the debate still rages about the species of fishes 4-7 inclusive. Beyond debate is the identity of this little late night visitor:
