Lady of the Loch : The Incredible Story of Britain's Oldest Osprey Paperback
During the last decade, the osprey has risen, phoenix-like, from the ashes - once extinct in Britain, now returned as a powerful symbol of hope.
The opreys' story is a moving tale of triumph over adversity.
Their slow but sure resurgence has attracted huge public interest and support; that of one bird in particular, Lady, at 25, Britain's oldest breeding osprey, has tugged at the world's heartstrings. For the past twenty years, Lady has made the 3000-mile journey from Africa back to Scotland, her nest and her mate.
In March 2010, she produced an egg for a record-breaking 20th year; despite her weakened state throughout that summer, and with the stalwart assistance of her youthful mate, the chicks fledged successfully.
But how many more times can Lady defy the odds; will the spring see her return, as, happily, it will so many other ospreys?
