Extraordinary 'Lady' osprey lays 2 more eggs, 65th and 66th of her lifetime23/04/2013 15:48:36 Lady lays yet more eggs
April 2013. The record breaking osprey, known as ‘Lady', at the Scottish Wildlife Trust's Loch of the Lowes Wildlife Reserve in Perthshire has laid two more eggs, the 65th and 66th of her lifetime.
The whole laying process was seen live on the nest camera, which is available to view online.
Scottish Wildlife Trust Perthshire Ranger Emma Rawling said: "The first egg was laid on 18 April amid very high winds and with an intruder osprey in the vicinity. The second arrived just after 1 am on 21 April but it wasn't until first light we got a good view of it as she rolled it delicately with her beak in the nest.
Third egg possible?
"We're still learning so much about osprey behaviour. Having the camera in the nest and so many enthusiastic visitors and viewers around Loch of the Lowes at the moment makes this time of year incredibly exciting."
