Lonesome Louis lonely no more

Lonesome Louis our Loch Arkaig osprey has turned out to be Lucky Louis!

Watch as the feathered soap opera, starring Louis and Aila, unfolded in the highlight above.

After waiting patiently for nearly three weeks with no female company, he now has them fighting over him. He has bonded with the first one who arrived but a further two have tried to muscle in.

A team of volunteers is monitoring the footage so we don’t miss anything. And they have named Louis’ mate as Aila!

Keep up to date with all the drama from the nest in our live Osprey Cam, supported by players of People’s Postcode Lottery
