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

Our adult female KL has left for Senegal. Bega has moved slightly and is taking her time flying around  near No 14.  Number 14, our 2013 hatched bird is still flying the South Lakes but all will be migrating back to Africa in the very near future. Unring will be on his way back to warmer climes.


  • LAST CHANCE for 2016 to visit the exhibition and viewpoints. Our last day of opening is Monday 29th August.
  • Keep reading the Diary over the winter for updates on our two tracked birds, Bega and No 14. Will they make it back to Africa?
  • Bega is out flying so goodbye to the nest internet live streaming until next year!

Bega and her Brother

As of Friday:

Both Bega and her brother No 14 are now in the air.

Bega crossed the channel, and left the Normandy coastline on the 14th then headed for Bordeaux and at the last download was at Poitou- Charentes. This area is renowned for the migratory movements of its people, as it is the region of origin of most of the Arcadian and Cajun populations of Canada, where of course the N American osprey populations are just starting to move on their journeys to Central and South America.

Number 14 is on his  third trip south. Left Cumbria at 10.00 Thursday and then motored to Garstang 11.00, West Birmingham 1400 and the last signal Marlborough, Wiltshire 1600, heading for New Forest area.
