LOCH GARTEN OSPREY GABFEST for APRIL and MAY, 2018

  • HAPPY EASTER to you too JUNE

  •   Thanks, Patily, I hope  ALL our contributors, watchers and readers have a lovely Easter Day.  It looks like it is off to a good start as EJ enjoys the morning sun.  Some of her feathers show quite white in the light.

  • Nice pictures June. Ian

  • Again I find EJ in the same position and again the cam has cut off most of her head. No need to take another picture which would pretty much be a duplicate of the last one.

  •  FROM FACEBOOK

  •      FROM FACEBOOK 2 years ago.  This just now showed up on my page as a "Memory"  I thought that while EJ waits for a mate today, that y'all might enjoy this memory, too.

  •  ah so it was snow that I saw coming down earlier in the nite lite.  And I see that it is still snowing.  Some has settled on EJ's shoulder. 

  •  It was also snowing earlier at Manton Bay, but doesn.t seem to have stuck here.  Just some fog.

  •  It was also snowing earlier at Manton Bay, but hasn't stuck.  Just some fog.

  •  First time I have seen EJ since early morning snow.  She flew away as I watched, but was soon back carrying a large twig./ or small branch.

  • JUNE - Just been watching for 20 minutes before you posted and she has been on/off chasing another osprey. A female with a blue ring. The battles to keep the nest begin. She was carrying a half eaten fish flying around with it.

  • JUNE - There is a recording of the intrusion and chase on DU. Trying to ID the bird which appears to be Blue 08.

  • Thanks Keith, During the time EJ was off the nest I did see a bird in the upper right corner, far enough away that it appeared only big enough to barely ID as a bird, apparently an osprey.

  • I am glad other osprey  have returned to LG>  However, I do wish it were a single MALE osprey only.  As Jag used to say "Let the drama begin!"  I just hope the final results are good.
