The story so far

Our live nest camera, supported by players of People's Postcode Lottery, has been streaming footage of breeding ospreys from Loch Arkaig Pine Forest since 2017.

Our resident pair, Louis and Aila, are expected to return to the nest in April to begin another breeding season. This will be their fifth year in the spotlight. In 2020 they successfully fledged three chicks, which were named Doddie, Vera and Captain by our camera viewers.
