LIVE: Loch Arkaig Osprey Cam

People's Postcode Lottery logo

Louis and Aila our Loch Arkaig ospreys have now migrated to Africa for the winter. We will switch on again in the spring when we hope to see them back for another season on the Loch.

Follow the story from the heart of an ancient Caledonian pine forest with our live osprey nest cam, supported by players of People's Postcode Lottery.

Our resident pair Louis and Aila raised a single chick last year, a male named Lachlan. They returned this spring for a second season and laid three eggs, but sadly a hungry pine marten stole the clutch. The adults should remain around the nest for some time, so stay tuned for fish deliveries, pair bonding and interesting osprey behaviour.

Help us tell more stories like this 

Without you, there would be no story to tell.

Loch Arkaig pine forest is the setting for this wild family drama. It's one of the few remaining fragments of ancient Caledonian pine forest and was brought into our care thanks to those who gave generously to our appeal. We have ambitious plans to restore and expand it for ospreys, pine martens and other native wildlife over the coming years, but we can't do that without your support.   

By joining the Woodland Trust, you can help us protect, restore and create woodland for wildlife all across the UK.
