The RSPB's Richard Thaxton and volunteer Clare Wordley delight in the magnificent ospreys that have been returning to Loch Garten since 1959.
Birds of prey continue to be killed, despite the fact that it is illegal and has been for decades. Some are still shot or poisoned, and their nests are targeted by egg-collectors. Please add your voice to our campaign to stop the killing.
