Scottish Osprey Chick Takes Flight!

Over at the Scottish Wildlife Reserve site:

It is with great excitement and jubilation that we bring this special announcement to you all!
At 1.54pm our osprey chick flapped his wings and flew straight off the nest. It was back within minutes but attempted a second flight at around 2.30pm.

On our nest the occassional osprey is seen milling about and moving sticks around and bringing in more grass. Our utility pole number is still present and continues to be moved around the nest. The osprey's should be around for a little longer until they begin their southward migration.
