Please note that the people on the Osprey Platform were volunteers from "National Trust Scotland" (NTS) not RSPB. We staff the platform from when the birds arrive in March to when they depart in September back to West Africa. We are "on duty" from 10.30 am until 4.30 pm seven days a week come rain, hail, snow and sunshine!. We are all passionate about the Ospreys and to sharing our knowledge and enthusiasm with all our visitors. During the season we normally meet and greet between 10000 to 12,000 visitors.We would love to see you again when the eggs hatch and the chicks are on the wing.Last year there were foor young healthy birds that fledged and left for West Africa by themselves.
