Big changes at Loch Garten

See RSPB Diary:  Out with the old, in with the new

Saturday 16th April

A blue-ringed male, Darvic AX6 (nicknamed Axel), who visited the new nest last year and returned this year on 12th April, has attracted a female. She has a metal BTO ring on her right leg but no Darvic. If the pair breed successfully I will continue to update this page

Sunday 17th April

The BTO ringed female has since been ousted by an unringed female. She is believed to be the same female that bonded but did not breed with AX6 last year. Their matings appear successful, whereas attempted matings with BTO ringed female yesterday were not. BTO ringed female currently still intruding and being chased off
