Yesterdays Loch of Lowes Widlife Blog

February 22nd, 2011 by jonathan
Morning folks,

Its a bit of a grey misty morning here at Loch of the Lowes but its great to see all the waterbirds returning to the loch.

Earlier on I counted 40 odd Wigeon, 20 or so Goldeneye, 6 Goosander and a pair of Great-crested grebe.

Although the grebes were some distance away I could see that they were already sporting their ornate head plumes. It shouldn’t be long before they’ll be performing their elaborate courtship display, which is quite something to behold. The drama begins with the pair raising and shaking their head plumes at one another. They then come together with weed in their bills, rising up and ‘dancing’ breast to breast in the water, turning their heads from side to side in perfect synchronicity. Breathtaking!

Happy blogging,

Jonathan

Countdown is running in the frontpage...today 13 days only!! Are 7Y and Marge, The Lady of the Loch, coming back??

There in one picture is typical Lady of the Loch


2.3. Jonathan Loch of Lowes Widlife Blog:

...As we’re now only weeks away from the return of our beloved ospreys I thought I would take the opportunity to give you an update on the whereabouts of the Bassenthwaite & Loch Garten tracked birds, plus news of a couple of early arrivals!...

...Meanwhile Rothes, the 2nd year female from Loch Garten, is still on the Ilha de Unhocomozinho off the coast of Guinea-Bissau....

Elsewhere there have already been two reported sightings on Birdguides of osprey in the UK! One bird was spotted just yesterday at Kincraig by Loch Insh, near Kingussie. This follows an earlier sighting down in Devon on the 23rd February.

I’ll bring you more news as and when I hear of any movements.

first ospreys are back in the uk, with perhaps 5 being seen heading north in the last week. Looks like an early arrival for some as the weather conditions in the uk have been good recently :eagle: :eagle:

A male Osprey has returned today to one of the monitored UK nest sites, this bird at the Glaslyn site in North Wales is believed to be the resident male, so it could be anytime soon for the both the loch of the Lowes or loch Garten birds, some UK Ospreys have arrived very early this year

:smilie_wet_150: It is sweet they both returned to nest together. Marge is chattering at nest ... 7Y came and they mated. Wishing good weather, happy nesting - - - and some nice photos. :treehug:

Marge is at nest a beautiful spring green around her ... Now she calls the 7Y and soon he arrives with the fish, Marge flies on the branch to eat. Also 7Y leaves the nest.

... Now they both are on the nest... 7Y flies off, Marge stays... and camera changes for night... Marge starts chirp and call.

Goodnight both. :hanger: :offtobed:
