Each year, the ospreys at Loch Garten have people across the world gripped in their tale of violence, adultery and... well... fishing.
This year's diary, written by the Osprey Information Assistants at the Loch Garten Osprey Centre, picks up the saga where we left off.
We update the blog at least twice a week - more often when there's high drama here. We hope you enjoy reading as the nest-side story unfolds...

I know that many of you out there are very eager to find out what is happening to the birds. I am checking for new data on the hour and will report on their movements when I know.
As of 10pm last night (29th) Deshar was still in the North Atlantic - he was at a height of 63m above sea level - but was flying North (at a course of 6 degrees) - prior to this his bearing was between 230 and 250 degrees, his speed was 17kph. At this course he has more chance of hitting Puerto Rico than Suriname - As mentioned before, the next data set will be very interesting.
Nethy has moved on from her position NE of Rennes and appears to have roosted at 8pm close to a lake near La Praliere, south of Montaigu.
When the next (complete) data set comes in, I will let you know.
Just got the data - as of 3pm today (29th) Nethy was 50km NE of Rennes (France) and Deshar was still flying, he has missed the Azores. He was at an altitude of 500m and has so far flown 1978miles (3185km). The facts are now clear - on his current course the next landfall is 2470 miles (4000km) away in Suriname,South America - that distance is 3-4 days away.
I will post a more detailed blog with the satellite data tomorrow.
