Osprey Chicks on the nestWelcome to the Lake District Osprey Project website

Ospreys are breeding near Bassenthwaite Lake for the fourteenth 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.

Number 14 makes progress.



Like the good Cumbrian bird that he is Number 14 keeps us all on tenterhooks. Having travelled 92 miles (148km) across the Bight of Bonny he has over four days only progressed 32 miles (52.6 km) to the west of his last position. It is, however, the wetlands of the Niger delta that he is over, so no doubt very interesting territory for a young osprey.
