The story so far

Our live nest cameras, supported by players of People's Postcode Lottery, began streaming footage of breeding ospreys from Loch Arkaig Pine Forest back in 2017.

The cameras are now streaming live from our two nests for the 2024 season, with our resident pair Louis and Dorcha both back at nest two. Nest one has been unoccupied this year but does have occasional visits from passing ospreys and other birds – watch the live stream on our YouTube channel and see what you can spot.

Support our work

We protect trees, restore woods and create thriving havens for wildlife across the UK, from incredible temperate rainforests and precious ancient woodlands to rare Caledonian pinewoods like Loch Arkaig. They're refuges for threatened red squirrels, mighty centuries-old trees and countless other species that can't survive without them. But we can't keep them safe without your support.

Please donate today – for the health of woods and trees across the UK.
