Egg joy at north osprey reserve

A female osprey whose young are being tracked by satellite has laid an egg after returning to an RSPB reserve in the Highlands for an eighth season.

Called EJ, her female offspring last year were tagged and their migration to Africa tracked by staff at Loch Garten near Aviemore.

The RSPB said she laid her first egg earlier this week.

The bird's partner, nicknamed Odin, has been bringing a regular supply of fish to the nest.
