      My Capercaillie Pendant

      I've just had delivered from the RSPB online shop, a Capercaillie Pendant which is solid silver and it cost quite alot of money and all the proceeds from the sale of this Pendant go towards helping the Capercaillie where it breeds in Scotland and is a very rare bird and breeds in the Scottish Caledonian Pine Forests. They do breed in the wild at the Loch Garten Abernethy Forest RSPB reserve where the Ospreys breed, but they are very reclusive and difficult to observe despite being the size of a large Turkey and I've never seen one before.
      On another subject I'm visiting Coquet Island off the Northumberland coast early on Thursday evening of this week and hope to observe the Roseate Tern, the UK's rarest breeding seabird and Coquet Island has the largest colony in the UK.

      It looks like a very nice pendant. I'm sure that the RSPB will invest the money raised into the reserve and that it will be a good investment for everyone.

      I suspect that you'll need to spend a lot of hours tucked away in a hide in order to see the Osprey. Of course it would help to be in a good place to see them too. There should be a few young ones flying around now, so you may not to wait too long.

      Do be careful on that Island though. I believe that there could be a big danger of you getting lost and not knowing which route to take in order to get back to the boat .

      The Osprey nest can be seen from the hide quite easily which is actually a big visitor centre run by the RSPB and they have some powerful telescopes provided by the RSPB to view the Ospreys. But Loch Garten is a massive reserve which has a huge amount of Birdlife and other wildlife and apart from the Ospreys and Capercaillies, there are Crested Tits, Varies types of Crossbills and also the Red Squirrel, which I have seen before and the Pine Martin and the Scottish Wildcat breed there as well, although those last two, you are unlikely to see as they are strictly nocturnal.
