Osprey News from Scotland...

EJ returned to Loch Garten today -2011- much to the delight of RSPB Scotland staff. She had a tough time in 2010 and we didn't know if she would return in 2011

Well, I have been viewing the osprey "EJ" (via the link you provided mod .. many thanks indeed)

Now EJ is obviously a veteran mom and has had a number of successful breeding seasons - she is already actively preparing her nest for the new season, even though her mate has not yet returned.
This is unlike our little lady who appears to be a little confused as to nest building. The "bowl" still appears to have a way to go although much better than it was!

Nevertheless, this website is the first thing I check each morning - perhaps soon ...?
