Back to the Ospreys


We first visited osprey cam on 1st June when the second of the three eggs hatched.  Click here to be taken back to the webcam to see them now.  The three chicks all have names:  "Doddie" is to honour Scottish rugby legend and charity campaigner Doddie Weir;

 "Vera" is to honour Dame Vera Lynn and "Captain" is to honour Captain Tom Moore, WWII veteran and NHS fundraiser.  It won't be long before they leave the nest but we have loved watching them grow up.
