Thanks for all that info WS  cheers 

I have just been watching the cam and Lady was on the nest, she had been calling quite frantically for her partner.

Such a clear picture of the nest and Lady

Busy calling and looking for her partner

He's got to be somewhere

Are you looking at me

Dads in with food in the background and mums off the nest......2 eggs

Thanks Doogs. I looked in yesterday and was quite worried as there was no-one on the nest and I couldn't see the eggs but this is why. This news has just gone up today but it's reporting what happened yesterday the 25th.

It looks like our male has dropped the ball again. He took over incubation at 17:32 and an hour later he upped and left the nest. There were no alarm calls or anything to suggest any form of disturbance. As ever our vigilant team checked everything to be absolutely sure and it looks like he just took himself off. The eggs were left unattended for over an hour and half before the female returned. It’s likely she was elsewhere and didn’t realise he’d left the nest as she is now incubating the eggs. We are now very concerned about their viability as they’ve been left for so long. However we are grateful for small mercies in that a crow didn’t spot them and come in for another snack. It’s possible the clump of moss he put on the nest last night, which is obscuring the camera’s view of the eggs, is hiding them out of sight from others.

I know how worried everyone will be but we’ll just have to watch and wait and see what happens next. Fingers crossed.

Lindsey


I have just looked in again and now the eggs are being incubated again.


lets hope the moss the male put over the eggs has kept them ok and they will still be viable

Great pics LW, and thanks for the update. I'm keeping my fingers X, but it's starting to get a bit desperate I think

Osprey News 31st May: No Eggs Hatched- What Next?

Posted on May 31, 2014 by rangeremma
The Scottish Wildlife Trust
So folks, the sad reality is that we do not have any hatched eggs on our osprey nest at Loch of the Lowes this year. With all the eggs now well past their normal incubation cut off dates ( all well over 40 days) , we have to accept the reality that, barring a miracle, we will not have chicks this year. Whilst sorely disappointing for us all , this is a natural phenomenon and something we will just have to accept.

We must remember that this is only the second time in 24 years that this female has failed to hatch chicks so this is not something we have seen often here. The last time was in 2011 so we don’t have a lot of precedent to go by, in terms of what to expect . What we must remember is that this is a great opportunity to study their behaviour and add to our osprey knowledge.

As one of our osprey watch volunteers said this afternoon, we should all focus on the fact that we have our beloved veteran female osprey here at all this year, and enjoy watching her because who knows if this will be her last year? We will all also be able to follow the osprey breeding season on other nests where many of our friends and colleagues at other UK sites on Wildlife Trust, RSPB, Forestry Commission reserves etc are having better luck than us this year!

Sad but I certainly agree with that last paragraph

WS

Thanks for the update WS. That is such sad news but also nature so we have to accept it. Let's hope it is not her last year and that next year she returns and is successful.

Sad news indeed WS but these things happen and the main thing is Lady is still alive and the public have enjoyed seeing her for another year.

Thanks for letting us know.
