Ooh boy - so a little peace there... at least it often seems like it. :what:

When opened the camera an osprey was at the nest. It watched closely around and flew off.

:hearts: Here is the latest from the nest :hearts:

2/28/11 The female osprey was on the nest at 11:44pm, last night. This morning there are 2 eggs in the nest. She is trying to adjust them so they are closer together as she is unable to sit on both at the same time. She is settling into an incubating position. BW




I can`t see the eggs :ornithologist: but they must be somewhere there :lol:

Updated News!
2/28/11 - Wind is moving that camera around a lot. Mother is having trouble settling onto that egg. I think there is just 1 egg after all. I blew up the photo and the other spot might have been a light colored branch. Wilf is reporting low osprey activity at the course as of about an hour ago. We'll have an update again this afternoon.

During the whole evening Mom has been very active regarding the nest cup. - The first chick already hatched? - don't know, but wouldn't wonder if it were so. I see even possible candidates in those pictures, I took. :D - that isn't also any wonder. 8-)

Three ospreys at the nest!!!... not fighting (at least during video moments), as they knew...could it be an offspring osprey??? Just a thought.

Looked there just before, both parents present, looked calm.

... and now only Mom. Kuva

In Nesting Notes : they might have hatched...

... but in your video, Pb, it's difficult to say, what's really happening there... but like to know! :what: :wassat:

I suspect its an intruder Osprey,as already stated, possibly an youngster reared at this nest in a previous year. The only other thing I could think of would be a trio, though this is unusual in Ospreys. Many years ago 2 females one male attempted to breed at the Loch Of The Lowes nest. Though if this was the case here i would have thought the third Osprey would have been seen at the nest on many more occasions
