And their names are…..

Since researching our last article about the Osprey chicks there has been an update on their names.

The public were asked to come up with names for the three Osprey chicks. We can now announce that the birds have now all been named and these names have certainly captured the mood of the moment. One chick was named Vera after the late Dame Vera Lynn, Captain after Captain Sir Tom Moore and Doddie after the famous Scottish rugby giant Doddie Weir.

They certainly have a lot to do to live up to the inspiration of all three of their namesakes. We wish them well and hope they all live long lives. The live cam footage has proved really popular with audiences and is a great way to see how much the birds have grown and to watch them as they prepare to fledge.
