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.

Migration or holiday for Number 14 ?








It’s beginning to look as if Number 14 has gone on a holiday visit to the mainland. Over the last few days he has moved east along the coast, crossing the point where he came ashore from Bioko last week. The thunder storms from last week have also disappeared so that may have something to do with it, just thirty degrees and a little rain forecast for this week – just like Cumbria then, but without twenty eight degrees.

Next big question is will he cross the border into Cameroon – yellow wiggly line right hand side of map ? Is this another country for the L.D.O.P Quiz team?
