Elegant EJ today flying her perch. Thanks to Moffer for the great captures.
EJ and FC8 spent a good hour and a half on the nest together this afternoon, with EJ softly calling for a fish! They also watched another osprey flying overhead with a fish in its talons, but didn't seem overly concerned. Could love be in the air?! Thanks again to the fabulous Moffer for the captures 😉

A grey morn here at Loch Garten, but what a sight on the loch! Despite the cold & ice, a sniff of spring is in the air - chaffinches & tits singing & not 1, not 2, but 3 woodpeckers having a drumming competition! Love this time of year 💚

💚 What do you love?
💚 Pinewoods? 💚 Spring flowers? 💚 The dawn chorus? 💚 Or how about chocolate? 💚 Home-grown veg? 💚 Your family? (of course!) 💚 Holidays in the sun? 💚 The list is endless, but how is Climate Change affecting the things you love the most?

Let's hear it for the Cairngorms National Park Ranger Services! 👏

We're proud to part-fund the RSPB Abernethy Community Ranger post with the National Park Authority.

The CNP rangers deliver a huge amount for people and wildlife, as shown below - and the Park would be a much poorer place without them 😃


Thank you, Rangers!

Did anyone see the "Super Blue Blood Moon" last night? An amazing natural phenomenon that last occurred over 150 years ago! Here's my attempt to photograph it...with a phone camera, I might add.
