May 30th by Ian under Bird Watching

Tags: Nae tags again!

30/5/15, spent a couple of hours at the 2014 osprey site, I say that as there was no sign of an Osprey, certainly not using the hand of man restored nest or the frustration nest on the navigational pole. I searched the estuary's opposite bank where last week a guessed male was perched, but this week no sign of an Osprey. Having seen a guessed male on the other side of the estuary and a protesting female on this side I presume there is a breeding (late) pair but on the other side of the estuary. On better news young birds spotted in my Aberdeenshire garden, a tree sparrow and a blackbird, here in Perthshire young rooks ardently flying like black ragged cloth. Swifts screaming over the village but in numbers much reduced from even two years ago.
