Latest news -

Our hopes for a second osprey chick for our Loch of the Lowes nest this season have all but faded now and it looks like our wee chick will be a brood of one. Thursday is day 44 for the first egg, and day 41 for the third egg, and it now seems very unlikely that either will hatch ( normal incubation is between 35 and 40 days) .

Both eggs however, now appear to be damaged, with cracks etc so it will be interesting to see if the female tolerate their presence in the nest much longer. At the moment she is continuing to brood these eggs, but she will eventually give up realising they are not viable ( though last year that took 70 days!).

The first chick is doing really well, and growing fast :)

It's a month old tomorrow, the blog says. :tu:

I try and have a quick look most days to keep up with its progress and the blog is very useful to find out what's been happening too. The reason this chick is doing so well is because it was the only one that hatched and so is getting all the fish to eat. Greedy wee thing! :)

Oh correction...that blog entry was yesterday so today is the chick's birthday! :clap:
