When Ospreys arrived in Britain this year it was late March and lockdown had just begun. It meant that they could settle down to breed in our countryside without disturbance from human beings. The result has been a record number of 300 pairs breeding this year and most have been successful. Ironically one of the unsuccessful ones was at Loch Garten where the first pair bred in 1954 and where no Ospreys returned to this year.
This weeks blog and gallery photos were taken on a magical day a few years ago when I filmed an Osprey’s nest for ten hours. Incredibly the male came every hour with fish compared to the following day when he only came twice – it was a long ten hour day! Click here
