Thank you for your patience whilst our cameras are temporarily turned off due to renovation work at the centre.

What am I looking at?

Spring and Summer

See if we have a nesting pair of ospreys at the world-famous osprey nest at the Loch Garten Nature Centre. If the birds aren't on the nest, you may be able to see them on their favourite nearby perches! You can also see what visits our small bird and squirrel feeder at Loch Garten via our feeder cam.

Autumn and Winter

Come Autumn, the ospreys have left on their winter migration and our webcam trains its lens on our small mammal cameras. You can still check out the feeder cam too, and watch the red squirrels and birds that feed there.

Where is it?

RSPB Abernethy Forest nature reserve, near Aviemore in the Scottish Highlands.

Factfile

  • Our breeding ospreys have returned here from their wintering grounds (West Africa, southern Spain or Portugal) and are battling all that nature can throw at them to raise a family.
  • The osprey nest site at Loch Garten has been in use since the late 1950s, when ospreys first returned to breed in Scotland after being persecuted to extinction in the UK in the earlier part of the 20th century.
  • The nest site has been continually monitored and protected by volunteers throughout the osprey breeding season ever since 1958.
  • Ospreys now breed across the UK and population estimates are at around 400 breeding pairs – a real conservation success story, which started here at Loch Garten.
  • Ospreys are the only raptor which have a completely fish diet.

Live nest cam

Our osprey cam is currently offline, but don't worry, you can still tune in to watch our Chichester cam where peregrine falcons are nesting.
