Daddy's home

By moiral
Evening all. A wee break from Wales today. Instead of some useless present he neither needs or wants, I tend to take my old Dad somewhere for Father's day. Today I took him to Balgavies Loch near Forfar to see the pair of Ospreys and their 2 chicks. Not the best of shots but we are quite a distace away from them, as their nest is on a tree in the middle of the loch. Not sure which is the male and which is the female. If you look VERY HARD you will see 1 chick in the nest. They do not fish on this loch so unfortunately no wonderful fish catch shots. Thanks for C&Cs on previous upload.
