LM12 has been missing for 4 days. Last seen around lunchtime on Sunday 28th April when he was thought to have gone fishing. Blue NC0 has not eaten for 5 days and over the last 24 hours has become more and more restless, leaving the eggs and taking regular flights around the loch

Friday 3rd May 

Still no sign of LM12 but there are other ospreys around suggesting that he may be occupied pursuing intruders. However, in his absence, Blue NC0 is having to fish for herself. Which she did today, very successfully catching herself a good sized fish.

Saturday 4th May

Police Scotland publish an appeal this evening after the remains of an osprey, thought to be LM12, was found in the vicinity of Loch of the Lowes nest yesterday. An investigation is in progress.
