Woodland Trust Scotland recruiting for Ospreycam volunteers

Do you love ospreys and ancient Caledonian pine forest, have reasonable Broadband and have a few hours to spare each week? We are recruiting for Ospreycam researchers to pick the best bits of footage from our nest-cam at Loch Arkaig. These highlights will then be shared on our website and social media. There’s no need to be a raptor or digital editing expert – training will be given. Assuming the birds arrive (fingers crossed they are on their way from Senegal as I type!), this role will run from April to September. Feel free to share with friends and family that may be interested!
