Aberfoyle, Scotland - Clarach & Mr. C

Quote
Sad news from Aberfoyle.

The youngest chick died yesterday afternoon and is no longer in the nest today. Clarach was seen taking the body away at 12:12 today.

It has been particularly wet and windy at Aberfoyle since the third chick hatched, but there is a sliver lining:

The forecast looks good for the next week or so and with one chick gone, both the remaining chicks now have a greater chance of making it.

They have both just fed and the two of them look great

An awesome tribute to Glesni's & Clarach's Rutland ancestors
New generation By Kayleigh Brookes on June 18, 2017:

It’s also nice to see that Rutland ospreys are venturing further afield and have helped the osprey population to spread into other areas of the UK. For example, from ring numbers we know that one of our translocated males, 11(98), went to North Wales and bred there for ten years, raising 27 chicks.

Also, both females that have bred at the Dyfi Osprey Project were/are Rutland-fledged birds. The current female, 12(10)/Glesni, is the grand-daughter of the infamous 03(97) or “Mr Rutland” as he was known to some – the very first translocated osprey to breed at Rutland Water, who bred for 14 years and raised 32 chicks.
http://www.ospreys.org.uk/a-lasting-legacy/

This year has brought about some special news regarding 03(97). One of Glesni’s chicks from 2013, 2R/Clarach, is breeding for the first time this year with an unringed male at Aberfoyle in Scotland, and is currently raising two chicks! This is fantastic news for Dyfi, Aberfoyle and also Rutland, as Clarach is the first great-grandchild of 03’s to breed, and therefore her chicks are 03’s first ever great-great-grandchicks!

Clarach isn’t the only great-grandchild of 03’s to return to the UK, as Rutland-born male 4K(13) returned to Rutland in 2015
http://www.ospreys.org.uk/a-century-of-rutland-ospreys/&#41

However, 4K is yet to breed. Clarach visited Rutland in April this year before heading north, and we would have loved her to stay here, but it doesn’t matter where she breeds, we are happy that she is and has brought the fifth generation of 03(97) into the world!

You can find out more about Clarach on the Dyfi Osprey Project’s blog.

Here are some videos and photographs of Clarach and her chicks, courtesy of The Lodge Forest Visitor Centre at Aberfoyle.

Aberfoyle, Scotland: The osprey chicks have now been ringed and returned to their nest - Clarach is back on the nest too after keeping watch from up in the air. At one point we saw both adults and an intruder circling the area.

They are both male and have been given the darvic rings LH0 and LH1.
LH0 has been satellite tagged and LH1 may be tagged later as was a wee bit too small.

We should be able to keep track of their progress over the next few years.

From The Dyfi project: First Aberfoyle chick, Scotland has fledged

Quote
LIFT-OFF!!!

At just after 4:30pm this afternoon Clarach's eldest chick took to the Scottish skies for the first time.

At 53 days old, Blue LH0 fledged directly into the wind and in doing so became Monty and Glesni's first ever grandchick to do so - as far was we know anyway.

Many congratulations to Clarach, her mate, and all the guys at The Lodge Forest Visitor Centre in Aberfoyle!

If only we could tell Glesni and Monty, they would be over the moon
