Thurs 25th March

It was great to hear that the female Osprey has returned to Loch of the Lowes, another sure sign that Spring is just round the corner. I have also noticed a few more lesser Black backed Gulls flying around, no doubt on the lookout for a sheep that may "couped" on it's back or for a weakly lamb.
Down in the field beside the Coastguard cottages today, the "congregation" of Golden plover were present and it was good to see that the majority of them were starting to show their summer plumage.
James had seen the Little egret out in front of the hide this afternoon and also a male Gadwall, he also reported that more Shoveler were present, but he was not too sure of extra Teal around.
