Swooping back to her old breeding ground for an incredible 22nd year, this is the spectacular sight of Britain's oldest-ever breeding osprey which has amazed birdwatchers worldwide.
The 27-year-old bird, known as Lady, laid a remarkable 62nd egg with a three-year-old ‘toy boy’at the Loch of the Lowes nature reserve in Dunkeld, Perthshire.
The record-breaking osprey produced the egg at 7.15pm on Saturday 4/15 on her usual annual nest, delighting both birdwatchers and the Scottish Wildlife Trust. Rangers were thrilled!
Every year for the past two decades, Britain's oldest breeding osprey has migrated from her winter home in West Africa to the shores of the Loch of the Lowes in Perthshire — a 6,000-mile round-trip covering perilous stretches of ocean and desert.
Lady has now raised more than 48 chicks and flown over 120,000 miles during her remarkable life.
