Osprey Chicks on the nestWelcome to the Lake District Osprey Project website. Spring 2017 is in the air and will be stirring the instincts of adult ospreys very soon now to start the migration North. Good winds and safe journeys!

2016 Autumn – Our adult female KL left for Senegal in August. The tracker on Bega our 2016 female juvenile has sadly stopped transmitting, East of Senegal – we can only hope it is a technical failure but it is not a hospitable place for survival . No 14 our ‘Star’ traveller, hatched 2013, is back in Bioko..  Unring our adult male will also be sitting in the sun somewhere South.


  • Exhibition and viewpoints. Our last day of opening was Monday 29th August, re-opening April 2017. BUT keep up with the diary!
  • Keep reading the Diary over the winter for occasional updates on our birds and other wildlife.
  • internet live streaming will start again next season probably in April.

Number 14 all well

Just to update – number 14 is still living in Bioko, fishing and flying so his tracker is still functioning. Not too long now and he will be getting the itch, along with all the other mature ospreys, to start flying North. Fragile wings against global winds.

A typical flight pattern on Bioko
