Loch's last two osprey chicks die
The two remaining chicks fathered by an osprey that kicked a rival's eggs from a nest have died.

Osprey Henry destroyed the clutch at Loch Garten, near Aviemore, after returning to find his long-time mate EJ had mated with another male, VS.

However, he went on to father a fresh three eggs with EJ.

The first chick hatched last week, but Henry accidentally killed it. Now the other two have died bringing an abrupt end to the reserve's breeding season.

RSPB Scotland, which runs the osprey centre, said visitors will still be able to see the adult birds at the nest site.
