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...

Thanks John for these beautiful pictures. I too would buy one of Caledonia. Absolutly stunning.
Was that Ian's work.
John such lovely pics, Calendonia is also very beautiful.
So pleased to see that all went well with the ringing, even if the weather did its best to thwart you again. The pictures are fantastic and I feel very privileged to be able to take part in all of your hard work, even if it is just from the comfort of my armchair.
Wonderful pictures.Truly magnificent Birds.Thank you its been a privelege to view them
Fantastic pictures :-) The last one would certainly grace any osprey lover's wall.
Thanks for the brilliant pictures. The close-up of Caledonia is stunning.
Cant say any more than has been said. What fantastic pictures.
That one of Caledonia should be sold in a frame at Loch Garten.
I would buy one. We can see every bit of her feathers. Thank you
Brilliant photos John. And a fine looking team too, if I may say!
Alicat - John has already said the photo in this blog is of chick #1, Caledonia, AA1, the chick with yellow eyes. There is another blog from John which has a photo of chick #2 Alba.
Beautiful like her sister. I wonder as one has more ginger on her neck whether Caladonia is not Odin's-any thoughts team?
Hi john is the pic caledonia or alba as the eyes look orange,is caledonia AA1 or AA2 and does the rings of AA1= 1st hatched yellow eyes and is that caledonia or alba,can you tell us what ring belongs to what name please, great photo by the way have you one for the other chick please
Those were worth posting. Thank you very much, aren't they wonderful?
Yes you're right, Alba has darker eyes than Caledonia.
