Old chick on the block?

Quite amazing drama over 19-22 June involving the elderly female osprey recorded at the Loch of the Lowes osprey website.

The tenacity with which birds – and other animals – cling to life when they have young to protect is quite astonishing: even if it ends sadly for this bird, the legacy of two more ospreys brought almost to the point of independence, if not yet fledging, seems secure.
