2019 Start Dates

The Osprey Viewpoints with telescopes at Dodd and the CCTV at Whinlatter Visitor Centre will be open from Monday April 1st until August 31st 2019.

We hope that our adult male bird will find a mate. Perhaps the female that stayed in the Valley for much of the 2018 Season will return.

We look forward to finding out if our GPS tracked bird, No 14,

will breed in South Lakes for the first time in 2019, after the 4000 mile journey across the Sahara and Europe. This were his movements (actually very little movement – just roosting and fishing) for the week preceding 14th Feb.

Today he sits basking in Bioko – 23C, Humidity 67%, sun and showers, wind 9mph (a bit different from the blow that we in Cumbria experienced last night!)
