Bill of health
Our osprey chicks at Loch Arkaig were ringed and measured on Thursday 04 July by raptor expert Lewis Pate.
Gender is assessed on a series of comparative measurements and the charts tell us we have two females.
The first chick, hatched on 01 June, has been fitted with ring tag number JJ0. The second, hatched a few days later on 04 June, has ring number JJ2.
Despite an initial size difference between the two chicks, both now weigh in at 1.49kg.
