History: Posted by SheilaFE on 5 Feb 2018 - RSTB-Blog

Here are "All the best bits from the Loch Arkaig Pine Forest osprey camera, Summer 2017, in 2.5 minutes", from the Woodland Trust.

2008 A pair may have started nesting at Loch Arkaig

2013 Chick White KL(09) f, hatched 2009 Loch Arkaig,

2013 is the likely first breeding year at Bassenthwaite of White KL(09) and unringed male

2015 No chicks

2016 No chicks

2017 The nesting platform used by the birds for more than ten years has been rebuilt almost from scratch as, with the birds adding new material every spring, it was beginning to sag under its own weight

Unringed m 10 April named Louis m arrived. Inconclusive whether same 10-yr male, but later concensus was that he was a first-time breeder

Unringed f 30 May new unringed female accepted by Louis

4 May 2017 WT named her Aila

10 May 17.20 Egg #1 Arrives with a grunt from Aila!

22.39 Owl on the nest. Spooked Aila who flew off.
A slow start but the action is here.

13 May 19.26 Egg #2 - speckled

Egg #3

18 June First chick hatched

18 June 17.13 Second chick seen struggling out of shell

22 June Two chicks alive, just.

One chick survived, and was ringed 22 or 23 July:Blue JH4(17) m, Lachlan

At 35 days old it has a body mass of 1,305g and wingspan of 291mm.

The Loch is home to otters (three orphans were released in the late autumn 2017) Pine marten have been seen on the nest. WTE and Osprey breed. It's about time I tried to get back there!

All I can say is "Oh No" for them. There is a great article if you look on cam about how happy we would be for Pine Martin family. True......It's all a balance of nature. There are many breeding pairs of osprey in that area so as they said some will hatch, grow and migrate and these two can be osprey this season.
