Nest To See You

Another fantastic week of weather despite a few showers which have at least served to keep the dust down. Justin, the RPSB tree-climber was up this week to ring the chicks which are now 7 weeks old. The 2008 nest seems to be in great shape and there was plenty evidence of prey up there so all's well and the chicks are still growing, growing, growing. Mind you, from up there he may have got an eagle's eye view but he did miss the osprey mobbing a juvenille sea eagle near the hide! We've also been treated to a cracking view of a very obliging peregrine falcon which perched near the hide for over an hour! Just goes to show that Loch Frisa is still full of surprises!


  1. We had a fantastic day at the hide last week, the day you did the ringing. Have you had any luck getting the camera up & running yet & any chance of a webcam on the internet?
    Would love to see the chicks.

  2. Thanks CW! I'm afraid we did put a camera in but we had to take it out again. It seemed to disturb the adults who must be used to things as they are on the nest and settled very soon after the camera was removed
