A young osprey raised and satellite tagged at an RSPB reserve near Aviemore is thought to have died after migrating to Africa.

Called Nethy by staff at Loch Garten, the bird of prey has not moved for two weeks according to tracking of her tag.

Her brother Deshar died last October after making a "navigational error" and missed landfall in the Azores.

The birds' mother EJ has returned to Loch Garten to breed after wintering in Africa.
