2021 return dates: LM12 (Laddie) - 21st March;  NC0(16) - 25th March

Laddie and NC0 were an exceptional team during 2021, successfully raising two very feisty and well fed juveniles, LR1 and LR2.  LR2 was sighted in Southern Spain on 3.9.21 and again on 25.10.21

2022 marks Laddie's 11th breeding year, NC0's 3rd, and very much hope that our wonderful pair have a safe, spring migration back to this stunning nest location at Loch of the Lowes.

  • A great capture of our resident pair. Thank you for setting us up for the new season Sandra .

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    ...On a cold & frosty morning... 

    And bright, too, later, but the sun and cam smudges have spoiled it so far.

    I do hope that Laddie and NC0 choose to determinedly defend this nest vs the EGs, if necessary - or that SWT have put a cam on the other nest!

    Hope #2, probably vain - a timeline, please?

    One or two Tawny Owls out there - I just happened to hear them very faintly when checking for something else, and they've enhanced quite well:
