Back in business!

2008 looks set to see a return to form for our Loch Frisa sea eagle pair, Skye and Frisa. The pair took up residence on a new nest in early March and sat tight on their eggs until they hatched around the 20th April.

A few weeks later and with spring very much in the air, the chicks are now old enough to be left ‘home alone’ on the nest while both adults are out and about finding food for these very hungry fluff balls.

Watching from the hide, this pair never fails to impress, showing off their 8ft wingspans as they soar over Loch Frisa and so we are looking forward to another successful season with them. It hasn’t just been the birds who have changed address. Our new all-ability hide opened to the public on Good Friday, providing a warm welcome to wildlife watchers young and old.

We’ve already built up an impressive species list and we continue to run daily trips to the hide – book now and don’t miss out!
