As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

Trust asks public to guess Osprey arrival time to win a VIP experience

The Scottish Wildlife Trust has issued an invitation to guess when the famous female Osprey, known affectionately by many as ‘Lady’, will arrive back in Perthshire for a record-breaking 25th year.

The bird has returned to the Trust’s Loch of the Lowes Visitor Centre and Wildlife Reserve, near Dunkeld to breed every year since 1991.

In that time she has laid 71 eggs and fledged 50 chicks, which possibly makes her Europe’s oldest and most prolific breeding Osprey.

As anticipation builds, the Scottish Wildlife Trust has launched a competition supported by players of People’s Postcode Lottery to guess when ‘Lady’ might arrive.

The winner of the competition will be treated to a once-in-a-lifetime, VIP Osprey Experience at Loch of the Lowes plus an osprey adoption pack.
