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.

The camera will be live throughout the 2020 season to bring you a glimpse of forest life from the Scottish Highlands.

Our resident pair Louis and Aila have now returned and will be busy renewing their bond and readying the nest. We expect other birds to drop in and check out the nest too, and perhaps even the occasional night-time visitor. 

Keep tuning in to watch the story unfold.

We need your help

“From my home at Loch Arkaig, I’m lucky enough to see the ospreys first hand and I know just how vital the Woodland Trust’s work is for this rare fragment of pine forest. Please show your support by making a donation to the restoration fund.”
