Male osprey at nest 17 May 2012

Alistair junior too this photo  Thursday 17 May 2012 at the Threave, Castle Douglas osprey nest. Alistair discussed the ospreys with Karl Munday of NTS Threave. Karl  thinks that so long as the weather improves from now on, the pair of ospreys will have a chance of raising some chicks this year.

However, ospreys have already hatched chicks in the Scottish Borders and Scottish Highlands, in Wales and in England.
