Ranging in Perth and Angus

Rothiemurchus is spending a lot of time flying arund looking at osprey nests and trying to find a mate and a place to loive – he has ranged from north of Loch Tay in the west to the Loch of Lintrathen in Angus.

Slow progress through Wales and England

The cold wintry weather with bitter NE winds has delayed Beatrice’s migration through UK but as I write on Sunday morning looking at the snow falling in Moray there’s nothing here for an osprey to rush home for!

On 4th April she made just 38 km from near Oswestry north to roost overnight neat Eaton Hall.¬† On 5th she was on the river there from 5am to 7am looking for a fish and then slowly travelled north via Manchester and Blackburn to roost that night on the River Ribble south of Hurst Green after just 9okm. Yesterday she set off slowly north but with the bad weather I would not expect her to go far – I’ll check her nest today to see if her mate is back.
