Male Osprey seen 28 March
Visited the Threave castle/ Castle Douglas osprey site today with my son between 12 pm and 2 pm. We were told that the male osprey had been seen at the nest that morning around 8 am, but we did not see it.
The path to the osprey viewing platform has been upgraded - most impressive.

Ospreys at Castle Douglas / Threave castle
This photo of an osprey on its nest near Threave castle/ Castle Douglas was taken last summer. The male osprey usually arrives first just at the end of March and then the female soon after/ beginning of April. This year I hope to get some photos/ video of the ospreys as soon as they arrive.
