Looking through the recorded footage again it looks as though we had a visit from the other male osprey on Saturday the 21st at 1.15pm, it was the unringed bird that has been hanging around the nest for a few days. He tried to mate with the female but she was having none of it and chucked him off, he sat on the edge of the nest for a wee while before eventually flying off. Sunday 22nd the viewing was difficult due to the Scots pine branch in the way most of the day. As far as I can see today she is still sitting on the 2 eggs although the nest cup is very deep and I can’t see if there is a 3rd yet or not. Male osprey yellow 08 which seems to be her mate this season was sitting on the eggs twice this morning for almost an hour on one occasion when the female was sighted on the east of our reserve over the Lochar Water.
