ospreys on the nest

  • Info: Live streaming webcam showing a resident pair of ospreys breeding and nesting in an ancient Caledonian pine forest at Loch Arkaig, Scotland. The area in which ospreys choose to nest must have an adequate supply of accessible fish within a maximum of about 12 miles of the nest. They are so well adapted to catching fish and have nostrils which can be closed during the dive into the water and reversible outer toes and backwards facing scales on the talons to give a better grasp of the fish.
