Osprey Sighting

Two visitors, Richard Jones and Anne Brown, came in to the centre this morning, very excited with the following story:

"Yesterday evening we watched an Osprey fishing at Loch Gorm for 15-20 minutes. Then it caught a fish and flew south over the ridge, holding the fish (Osprey fashion) in its talons. We were a little surprised that it made vertical dives into the water from up to 100 feet, rather like a Gannet."

Checking the blog,  we saw that James Howe had seen the same bird so it was an exciting evening at Loch Gorm yesterday!
