    An excellent live webcam in the highlands of Scotland, monitoring a breeding pair of ospreys - beautiful birds of prey!

    One chick already hatched, with two more eggs being cared for.

    I am always facinated they way birds weave such intricate nests.

    I live in a high rise and I have a big window that looks out on trees

    where birds nest. They fly to the top of buildings nearby and I

    see them everyday swooping and soaring in the air and stopping to

    rest on my balcony railing. There are Canada geese, robins,

    and various species. I wish I was more knowledgeable about

    the varieties I see, becuase I love them all.

    Searcher- Right NOW on the we cam, a bird hatched and the mother

    stood up and stretched her wings and started to feed the two chicks

    with some fish she has in the huge nest she built. What an amazing thing to

    see this as it happens in real time, thank you for this, its wonderful.

    The Searcher thank you for posting this webcam about the osprey. I too am a bird watcher, especially the predator type. I can get really absorbed in watching them. If only I had the time!

    Thanks for posting this. Last year, I followed a nesting pair in the north west USA on webcam. They are my favorite bird magnificent!

    I love to watch them fishing, their mastery of flight is unequalled. Their nests can be 2, or 3 metres wide (I've seen them, back in the woods - they build them along the power lines - those towers).

    Definitely bookmarked. :)

    3 eggs - that's unusual (as far as I know, usually 2 max).......... it's exciting to watch, humbling to see the devotion of these parents, and just straight up amazing.

    This particular nesting area was the target of egg-hunters in the past, but thanks to the RSPB and others, security has been stepped up over the years to protect these rare and beautiful birds!

    Cool! We've had the occasional osprey turn up at the Somerset levels but none have bred yet. I think it's just a stopping off place for those ospreys that migrate.

    Villagegirl, if the bird is feeding her chicks fish, my bet it is either an Osprey or a Bald Eagle.
