Lady Update

I posted just over a week ago about Lady the Osprey at the Loch of the Lowes near Dunkeld and about how ill she was. Working on the principle that no news is good news it was nevertheless with some trepidation that I clicked on the webcam to find out the latest news.

The video above I find extremely touching as it's very rare for a male Osprey (or Green 7Y to his mates) to hang around when a female gets sick or injured. This guys loyalty has extended not only to feeding the two chicks but also to feeding Lady (or Marge) himself.

As a result, Lady has made a remarkable recovery and by the middle of last week she was out fishing and feeding the chicks herself again.
