April 1st No Joke! Good start to season

Through the driving rain sweeping over the Bassenthwaite valley the grey shadow that we suspected was KL has been positively identified by her leg ring to be just that. She has been joined by another osprey that we assume is Unring as they are mating. However, we haven’t been able to get a good closeup of him yet to see his markings.

No 14 has been flying North through Algeria – again veering towards the West so we anticipate a Mediterranean crossing soon.

Welcome, one and all!

The Project opens on Saturday April 1st. At Dodd the viewpoints will be open with Staff, Information Volunteers and telescopes at the ready. However, as every year, if it is raining hard the optics have to be put under cover to prevent damage.

At Whinlatter the new osprey viewing area is now sharing an area with new  forest information and  retail space. The CCTV screens are bigger than ever and showing clear views of the nest .2012180
