Time flies when you’re an Osprey - 26 July 2017

Our osprey chicks have been very active over the past couple of weeks.

PH1 and PH2 have both been seen practicing their fishing. Although they are not yet catching fish  for themselves, they are certainly warming to the idea. They have been seen chasing each other around the loch, which has been a joy to watch, and a farmiliar game for those of us with siblings. They can still be seen returning to the nest to feed along with their mother (LF15), a bit crowded now they’re growing up!

Bon Voyage LF15

We believe LF15 has now left on her migration. The last confirmed sighting was on Saturday the 5th at roughly 7 o’clock in the morning, on the nest. She was possibly around later in the day flying in the area and perched however she did not return to the nest. Her departure is a few days earlier than last year (13/8) but this is not unusual as she was slightly ahead of schedule this year in laying her eggs.

Now that LF15 has left its time for classes for PH1 and PH2 as they continue to learn from dad (LM12) to fish for themselves. For example, PH1 made an attempt on Sunday to perch and feed on the silver birch tree struggling with the idea of not dropping the fish, before returning to nest defeated. Hopefully the two youngsters will have this down before they leave for their own migration. Last year all three chicks left before the end of August so we assume PH1 and PH2 will leave around the same time or the start of September. It’s amazing to think that PH1 and PH2 will only be 13-14 weeks old before they have to make the long trip...

And now there are two …

Our male osprey chick, PH1, has set off on migration.


We were about to announce his departure a few days ago but then he must have popped back – now, however, we can confirm he has left Loch of the Lowes – we wish him a smooth and safe migration.

PH1 was a very noisy juvenile who could be heard by visitors as soon as they reached the car park. We thought peace would reign when he left, but no, PH2 has taken up the cry and keeps up what sometimes feels like incessant calling from the nest.

It has been noted that LM12 quite often delivers a fish to the nest around 5pm each day. The drop off of ‘supper’ can be over in the blink of an eye but for very observant webcam watchers this fleeting view of two ospreys can be seen on the webcam.So, the end of the osprey season is nearly upon us. If you are in the area you still have a chance to see them. The adult male, LM12, and PH2 are providing good sightings because PH2 spends a lot of time perched up on the trees directly opposite the hides.
