An exciting addition to our website is the live camera footage from a local heronry. The footage can be viewed on your own devices, or watched while visiting the Centre.
Throughout each winter the herons return to the trees to roost at night. Nesting begins in February, with adult herons selecting and preparing nest sites, either refurbishing old nests or building new ones.
If you click on the link below and you can see footage – some live, some still – of wildlife activity on the Morroch peninsula, just out of Arisaig village. We hope that efforts to transmit images directly from the herons’ nests will be rewarded with some fascinating footage of the parent herons’ behaviour, and their chicks, once they hatch.
