Osprey Chicks on the nestWelcome to the Lake District Osprey Project website and the Excitement of their 2016 migration. Crossed fingers they all make the desert crossing!

Our adult female KL has left for Senegal. Bega our 2016 female juvenile is travelling well – perhaps heading for Senegal too. No 14 our ‘Star’ traveller, hatched 2013, is over the centre of the Sahara on the way back to Bioko.  Unring our adult male will also be on his way back to warmer climes.


  • LAST CHANCE for 2016 to visit the exhibition and viewpoints. Our last day of opening was Monday 29th August. BUT keep up with the diary!
  • 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’s Tracker signal ??

Over the past week or so we have been watching Bega  anxiously as her tracker seemed to be signalling from one place. This can indicate one of a number things, either that her tracker has stopped working, or it has fallen off (unlikely) or that she has perished. We are, of course, hoping it will be the first, although we know that it is just as likely to be the latter. The tracking device works by solar power so if the panel falls face down it will stop working. As the are is remote it is unlikely we will be able to find anyone to go and look at the last place it signalled. But if you know of anyone in Guineau Bissau  with access to GPS please let us know!
