27th April 2012
Intrusions have continued this week but unfortunately it has been necessary to involve a Police Wildlife Liaison Officer. Having spoken to a number of individuals on 4 occasions within disturbance zone of osprey hq I was most concerned to find the same people within 100 yards of the nest. After speaking to SNH & taking their advice to inform the Police, a WLO attended & visited the home of 2 of these intruders. Hopefully this will be the end of the matter & XL & M will not now be disturbed.
Today, there is a significant change in behaviour on the nest with regular images forwarded from the nestcam. XL appears to be incubating an egg but I will have to see what happens when M brings a fish. A changeover will be indicative that an egg is present.
Below is M bringing a very large stick to the nest.
