This blog is written by Abernethy staff throughout the changing seasons here on the reserve.
During summer it's likely there'll be more frequent blogs as the ospreys return to breed at the Loch Garten nest and the drama unfolds.
We hope you enjoy following life at Abernethy reserve.
Thanks for reading!
The male osprey that had a plastic ring inscribed 'HV' (nicknamed 'Henry') was ringed as a chick in a nest on the Black Isle, just north of Inverness, on 9 July 1998.
Henry had distinctive orange eyes. Young ospreys have orange eyes, but they usually turn yellow as they get older.
For the first time since 2003, Henry didn't turn up at Loch Garten in 2008.
