The top of the Chimneys of the office here can be seen when the Osprey are catching fish - so watch for us every night at 8pm!

And the third chick has arrived at the Loch Garten Osprey nest

And a baby osprey should be on the way - due to hatch any time soon so might be worth a visit to the RSPB reserve at Boat of Garten.

The weather forecast is good - so have fun!
