Possible Osprey sighting? Loch Ness

Post by Lukeskilukas » Sat Jul 31, 2021 7:41 am

Hi there, myself and the family were on hols this week in Scotland. We were on the bank of Loch Ness when what appeared to be an Osprey came roaring past at low level. We captured a video but we'd love to get verification (haven't learned how to upload videos on here yet) Weve not found any evidence of previous sightings on the web at all. Would be great if someone on this forum has ever seen or heard of Osprey flying over Loch Ness before [
- cheers Luke

They are fairly regular visitors to the Highlands low-level flying area, it would have been one of the Ospreys that arrived at Prestwick for fuel this week.
Have a look through the daily logs for Prestwick to find out which one it was (you haven't said which day it was) :- viewforum.php?f=77

Photos are on Instagram of an Osprey operating on RFA Mounts Bay in the Scottish highlands this week.
