I have been reading about this pair of Ospreys for a few weeks now to follow their progress. A few weeks ago the male Osprey found that his mate had mated with someone else and so destroyed all the eggs. She then laid another batch which were his and the first chick hatched on Thursday. Sadly, it appears that the male Osprey has now trampled on the chick and killed it whilst trying to free himself from some fishing line. Let’s hope the other eggs hatch and there are no further incidents. They really are magnificent birds and with only about 130 pairs left in Scotland, they need all the help they can get.
