Jim the warden from Balgavies confirms the crows are on the nest at Balgavies after the Osprey pair were fending off a rival pair and off the nest for a long time yesterday. Sad news.

Sorry- not a bird report but a request. A friend left a green hat (of which he is very fond!) in the Gullery Hide yesterday evening. If anyone has picked it up to keep it safe please let me know so that it can be re-united with its owner. Thanks Allan
