Osprey Update 25/9/2012

Our Osprey chicks are still showing well from the public viewing platform, but increasingly spending more time further away from the nest gaining strength in preparation for their migration. Our male black 80 was around over the weekend and seen bringing in a fish.

The good news we have an identity for our female Blue XC, Many Thanks go to Emyr Evans. We are awaiting more details on her and I will pass this information on as we receive it, yet another piece in the Threave Osprey story .......

  1. Glad to know chicks and male osprey still with you, this week would not have been a good one to migrate in. Will be interested to know where Blue XC is from. Jenny C
