THE latest offspring of the UK’s oldest breeding osprey has been spotted at its Perthshire birthplace.

Lady, the 28-year-old raptor, has been pictured with her chick at her home in Dunkeld, Perthshire. Lady has been returning from African migration every year for the last 23, and the chick hatched earlier this week is thought to be her 50th.

Val Gall, wildlife interpretation officer at the Loch of the Lawes nature reserve, said earlier this week: “It is just fantastic. The staff here are all over the moon.

“There were shouts of ‘yes’ when the chick broke through and we are all celebrating.

“The fact that Lady is the age she is and has produced a live chick is just amazing.”
