Sad news from Aberfoyle.

The youngest chick died yesterday afternoon and is no longer in the nest today. Clarach was seen taking the body away at 12:12 today.

It has been particularly wet and windy at Aberfoyle since the third chick hatched, but there is a sliver lining:

The forecast looks good for the next week or so and with one chick gone, both the remaining chicks now have a greater chance of making it.

They have both just fed and the two of them look great.

Good Morning (here) Ferenz....

I am glad the remaining two chicks are healthy and eating. They are adorable. This nest makes me smile, returning and restarting. You got to love it. Smile

An awesome tribute to Glesni's & Clarach's Rutland ancestors.
New generation By Kayleigh Brookes on June 18, 2017


...Itís also nice to see that Rutland ospreys are venturing further afield and have helped the osprey population to spread into other areas of the UK. For example, from ring numbers we know that one of our translocated males, 11(98), went to North Wales and bred there for ten years, raising 27 chicks. Also, both females that have bred at the Dyfi Osprey Project were/are Rutland-fledged birds. The current female, 12(10)/Glesni, is the grand-daughter of the infamous 03(97) or ďMr RutlandĒ as he was known to some Ė the very first translocated osprey to breed at Rutland Water, who bred for 14 years and raised 32 chicks. Click here for more information about 03. http://www.ospreys.org.uk/a-lasting-legacy/

This year has brought about some special news regarding 03(97). One of Glesniís chicks from 2013, 2R/Clarach, is breeding for the first time this year with an unringed male at Aberfoyle in Scotland, and is currently raising two chicks! This is fantastic news for Dyfi, Aberfoyle and also Rutland, as Clarach is the first great-grandchild of 03ís to breed, and therefore her chicks are 03ís first ever great-great-grandchicks!

Clarach isnít the only great-grandchild of 03ís to return to the UK, as Rutland-born male 4K(13) returned to Rutland in 2015 (click here to read more http://www.ospreys.org.uk/a-century-of-rutland-ospreys/ ). However, 4K is yet to breed. Clarach visited Rutland in April this year before heading north, and we would have loved her to stay here, but it doesnít matter where she breeds, we are happy that she is and has brought the fifth generation of 03(97) into the world!

You can find out more about Clarach on the Dyfi Osprey Projectís blog Ė click here!

Here are some videos and photographs of Clarach and her chicks, courtesy of The Lodge Forest Visitor Centre at Aberfoyle.
