Osprey Chicks on the nestWelcome to the Lake District Osprey Project website. Spring 2017 got off to a good start – female KL arrived 28th March, male Unring 30th March. Eggs were laid on 11th, 14th, 17th April.

First chick hatched Thursday 18th May and a second on Friday 19th May, and the third on Monday 22nd May. A full clutch!

 KL mother  and both U8 and U6 the male chicks have started their migration. Unring father and U7 female chick can still be seen today.

No 14 our ‘Star’ traveller, hatched 2013, spent the winter in Bioko. He reached Cumbria April 16th. Since then he has been flying all over South Lakes but does not seem to have met a partner. We will follow his tracked flight when he starts his migration.

The webcam has been suffering multiple technical glitches and is currently and sadly unavailable. .

What has he got Toulouse?

No14 moved away from the Nevers area of the Loire on the 24th September and then spent a couple of days just north of the Pyrenees in France, passing over Toulouse, before moving down through the eastern side of Spain.

On September 28th he crossed over the Mediterranean from Murcia in Spain to near Mellila in Spanish North Africa.  Mellila, although surrounded by Morocco is in fact an autonomous Spanish city, and has been since the 15th century. No 14 will be one of the many entities that pass through as Mellila is a destination for refugees attempting to cross the other way into the European Union. Of more interest to him may be is that the area is also a surfing destination for holidaymakers and where there is surf there is often fish!
