LOCH OF THE LOWES – MAY 2018

  • Link to last post on Loch of the Lowes – April 2018

    Summary of the season so far:

    LF15/Lassie arrived back 20 March and LM12/Laddie on 29 March. The pair are currently incubating three eggs - #1 laid 14 April, #2 laid 16 April and #3 on 19 April and are due to hatch later this month.

  • Lassie got a frosty tail this morning too.

  • I took this snip a while back, and forgot to post it.   Laddie arrived fishless, and Lassie gave him a good talking to and he flew off again.

  • Good morning Mary, nice capture.  I must have just missed Laddie.

    Lassie incubating, looks like it's going to be another nice day.

  • Well I'm obviously still half asleep.  Thank you for starting the new thread Karen, I didn't even notice, I forgot today was the start of May :)

  • Morning Starling

    He was only there for a wee bit, Lassie was nagging big time, so after a couple of wing flaps, off he went. :-) 

    It is always nice to see the sun shining and dry weather when they are incubating.  Long may it last. 

  • Busy woodpecker in the background  Lassie has her head down, sleeping

  • Sorry It was Laddie incubating and Lassie has now returned and nagging him to get off the eggs, which he does and has flown

  • Looks a bit windy here but at least it is dry.  Looks like Laddie incubating just now

  • Laddie brought in a decent size fish about 10 mins ago.

  • Thanks, Karen, for starting yet another thread!  And thanks to All for the pics and posts.

  • Cannot see who is hunkering down in the rain this morning but probably Lassie.

  • Morning All - a very wet looking Lassie incubating just now but at least she has her head so so hopefully it is beginning to dry up now
