LOCH OF THE LOWES - JULY 2021

  • Good morning Scylla and Patily,
    Many thanks for the vid, Scylla.
    I'm very much in a rush this morning (slept through the alarm!) so will only do a quick summary.
    Laddie did a drop off delivery of a small, live fish at 5:15ish. LR2 was already there to claim it. LR2 flew off with it but came back to eat on the nest 5 minutes or so later. NC0 arrived around 5:50, LR2 had already eaten what he'd wanted so she tucked in. LR1*** came to the nest but not sure if NC0 fed her.
    At time of writing, NC0 is feeding LR2 with a new fish
    I have to go but will check back later.
    BFN

    ***Edit - in my haste, it was LR2 who was on the nest with NC0

    14:52 Laddie brought a fish to an empty nest. LR1 arrived first closely followed by LR2

    LR2 flying round from the birch area. LR1 was already on her way but not in shot here. NC0 on her birch branch

    LR!

    LR2 to perch

    16:40ish A zoom on the birch. The Osprey on top of the left branch had just landed after flying from around the corner (behind the birch)

    The one on the top left branch flew back to the nest

    I think it was LR1

    Flight away

    18:35 NC0 delivered another, LR1 was on the nest to take this one...after a little struggle

    LR1 flew off with her fish

    19:16 Laddie came to an empty nest with a stick

    He placed it at the back of the nest

    He stayed for a short while before leaving

    At time of posting, it's been ENS since then
