The Loch Garten red squirrel and small bird feeder

Every 2 minutes.

What am I looking at?

Red squirrels and woodland birds feeding on peanuts.

Where is it?

The Loch Garten Osprey Centre, part of RSPB Abernethy National Nature Reserve


  • Our breeding ospreys have migrated south to sunnier climes for our winter (they could be in West Africa, southern Spain or Portugal)
  • Over winter we continue to put out food for our resident wildlife here in the Caledonian pineforest. Look out for red squirrels, chaffinches and many tits, including the rare crested tit
  • In the UK, crested tits are confined to Scotland's Caledonian pine forests
  • Red squirrels are now found only in a few isolated pockets of the UK
  • Siskins are tiny finches, only about the size of a blue tit
