We are launching the Year of the Osprey with an Osprey Family Day on 15th September at the Community Hall which will run from 12 noon until 3.20 pm – come along and join the fun!

The Osprey family is an integral part of the Boat of Garten family and as such is much admired and loved by the villagers and visitors alike. It is therefore appropriate to celebrate this family’s sixty-fifth year of residency and sixty years of RSPB management; celebrations have already started with pupils at Deshar Primary School writing and illustrating a book about ‘our’ Ospreys which will be published by RSPB in time for Christmas.

It was agreed at the Big Conversation on 28th April that the community would be asked what it would like to see at the Curling Pond. Boat of Garten Community Company is organising a survey in the Community Hall on Saturday, 15 September during the Launch of the Osprey Migration Festival, so please drop in between 12 noon and 3pm to give your views.

The survey will be overseen by a representative from VABS, and members of the Community Company and Nash Masson from Ride Cairngorm will be there between 2pm and 3pm to answer any project-specific questions.
