There are five new photographs on the Photo page, starting from number eleven. I am sure that there must be some good photographers who have not yet sent any photographs in for the Photo page.

PRESS RELEASE

For immediate use: 30 March 2008

First osprey returns to the Lowes

The Scottish Wildlife Trust [SWT] is delighted to announce that today (30 March 2008) the original female osprey has returned to her summer home at Loch of the Lowes Wildlife Reserve near Dunkeld. Once the first egg is laid, staff and nearly 70 volunteers will take it in turns to man the round-the-clock watch to safeguard these magnificent creatures.

The female osprey arrived at 2pm this afternoon and has already been joined by, and mated with, a male osprey with a yellow ring. The resident male has not yet been seen but can arrive some time after his partner, when he will attempt to chase any interloper away and take over the breeding process.

Once a common species in Britain by 1916 ospreys were all but extinct. Thanks to tremendous conservation efforts ospreys are once again an established part of Scotland
