Osprey Update 07/06:
The pair have been sitting tight on the nest over the past week with the male bringing fish to the female. Male ospreys do share incubation duties although the female will do the bigger share, sitting for around 70% of the time.
The Threave Osprey Platform is obviously a very sought after piece of opsrey real estate. As this picture from Ken Russell shows. Ken took the shot down from the platform on 01/06 and tells us that the a pair of ospreys arrived and were showing a lot of interest in the nest. It took the male a good 8 minutes to see them off, while the female sat tight on the nest looking after her eggs. If you look closely at the photo you can just see the head of the bird on the nest.
