Thought we would post information about other sites while our pair contiues to incubate their eggs. We continue to have an intruder osprey frequent the platform.

Friends of Blackwater
It appears that they have a pair actively constructing a nest and mating.

The Scottish Wildlife Trust
The Scottish Wildlife Trust is delighted to announce the return of the resident female osprey at Loch of the Lowes, near Dunkeld.
The female osprey, known affectionately by many as ‘Lady’, estimated to be in her late 20s, has been returning to the reserve for the past 24 years and could be the oldest breeding osprey in the UK.

Chesapeake Conservancy
The Chesapeake Conservancy is expection their osprey couple, Tom and Audrey, back from their Journey to South America this past winter.

Hopefully Lady's eggs will still be viable!
(and thanks for making the texts below less difficult to figure out!)

Could the intruder osprey be one of their offspring from last year or earlier?

The intruder could possibly be a chick from a few years back. Ospreys will return to the area in which they fledged. Some Ospreys will return when they are 2 years old, but do not usually begin to breed until they are 3 to 5 years old.
