Ospreys are breeding near Bassenthwaite Lake for the fifteenth year and are using a nest near the Lake which has been previously occupied. The nest has a High Definition camera, with live pictures being sent to the exhibition area at Whinlatter.  You can also visit our open air viewpoints at Dodd Wood.

Lake District Osprey Project; Number 14 Comes out of the Desert.

NO14 290915 2

By Tuesday evening ,having used his tactic of flying high and fast, Number 14 was able to roost close to the Niger River as it crosses from west to east through Mali. A good part of Wednesday morning was also spent in that area. With Giraffes and various other animals from the African collection of wildlife below him he then continued south towards the border with Burkina Faso. By entering Burkina Faso he will not only get closer to his favourite island of Bioko but will also add a new country to his list.
