ospreys became extinct in Scotland
RSPB's work in Scotland to protect the ospreys from the many dangers they face is ongoing, with each new chick needing careful monitoring and protection. This stunning bird of prey is an 'Amber List' species, which means it has experienced historical decline. This is due to illegal killing, and low breeding numbers).
RSPB's online 'osprey blog' is incredible - thousands of us are gripped by the birds' stories every year as we watch tagged birds carry out their epic migrations to Africa. http://www.rspb.org.uk/wildlife/tracking/lochgartenospreys/ We can only be a part of these amazing journeys thanks to the satellite tracking of Loch Garten's osprey chicks each year by RSPB.
Do birds fly over mountain ranges? There is still so much we don’t know about these amazing birds.
This year, the team plan to fit another two satellite tags on chicks leaving the nest. This will help enable RSPB's ongoing work to track and understand the birds' journeys, answering many of our questions and helping safeguard the future of these magnificent creatures in Scotland. We need to raise funds to enable our osprey tagging to proceed.
Think ospreys are as special as we do? Please donate if you can to help RSPB purchase two satellite tags this year. http://www.justgiving.com/ospreyslochgarten
