Sunshine I am seeing very positive signs so far and do like that Lady is being called Lady again.
I am looking forward to a good season next year.
one of my community friends works at LOCH OF THE LOWES . his name is JONATHON and he is now the visitor centre assistant manager ... i like to think he has made a positive change to L of the L
I don't get around or keep up with things like you do, B&B, and am very grateful for your info :-*
I have just read the Lowes Blog and they have a lot of work to do on the Reserve after the winds and want to say, I am enjoying reading their Blogs again and look forward to what next Season brings.
OG I agree with everything you have said and no way can Lowes be like it was, too much time on the Blogs and I understand that. Hopefully they will find a happy medium and as you said, hope it is a success next yr even if Lady does not come back but to be honest I am expecting her and it will be interesting if she does, will Laird divorce her, I have read that somewhere.
B&B - pleased to know the news of Emma's return has been made public. She was down here at WWT Caerlaverock this year! I really hope that LotL will pick up next year and put 2011 behind it - while I support SWT's protection of copyright if that is what it chooses, there were definite communication attitude issues which we don't want to see repeated. As for the Ospreys, maybe the Old Lady will return, maybe not, but whoever occupies the nest, I wish LotL a successful Osprey season in 2012.
I see from the Lowes Blog Emma is coming back as a permanent Ranger and that is possitive, I read that she was at Peebles this year however the temporary ranger Doug Thomson seems a nice caring man. Wish Lowes all the best for next season and hope their jewel in the crown Lady comes back in March.
Hip hip hurray, LoTl team have put the feeder web cam up..
Webcam was zooming-in all around the Loch at 9am as if they are looking for something.
Camera still on @ 1800 hours - showing a view of the nest.
