Breeding success for Kielder ospreys

It has been the most successful year ever for four breeding osprey pairs on the Scottish Border.

Nine chicks have already fledged in their nests high up in the treetops at Kielder with two more due to fledge soon.

There are now hopes that the birds can one day re-colonise much of this part of the country.

More than 100 rally crews are arriving in Jedburgh for the second round of the Scottish Rally Championship.

The Border Counties rally takes place in and around the forests of Kielder in the Scottish Borders.

Dumfries driver David Bogie will be battling against Euan Thorburn from Duns for the overall honours.

Both drivers are competing in Ford Focus World Rally Cars around the 40 stage miles of the rally.
