New Storytelling Tool Takes Flight With Ospreys

The Trust has introduced an exciting new multi-media storytelling tool called Shorthand – and Loch Arkaig osprey nest volunteers are at the heart of the action.

It is a lot easier to show you how great the approach is rather than describe it – so take a look!

Shorthand allows us to bring together spectacular still images, text and video in a high-impact package. It gives us the ability to better tell the stories we know from research our audience wants to hear – and really immerse people in each story.

A massive well done to Amy Lewis, Phil Formby and Lee Mellor – they’ve created something beautiful here.

Volunteer Liz Bracken is one of the stars of the show.

Meanwhile…. following the appearance of a pine marten on the nest on Friday, we had a rival male to Louis appear on Monday morning, give Aila the glad eye, and move a few sticks around. The intruder bird was tagged and we are trying to find out what we can about him.

First egg laying could come this week so it is a marvellous time for Shorthand to draw attention to the nest.

    What a great story and a lovely way to tell it. Lewis who is in one of the films used to work down here in Loch Lomond and Trossachs, on the red squirrel programme, I think. Good to hear about his work and the value -and challenges – of the excellent camera system. Lots to view, read and absorb so I’ll make return visits!
