Lake District Osprey Projects young birds growing up.

MaleFemale 18th Aug

As we enter the Bank Holiday week end with reasonable weather forecast for Sunday and Monday we can report that there is still a good chance of seeing ospreys from the viewpoints at Dodd Wood and on the screen at Whinlatter. If you double click on the map above you will see that both young birds are moving around. The yellow pin is Number 14, the green pin Number 15, the purple pin denotes both together. Young Number 14 seems to have spent his first night away from the nest and both have reached the lake. As well as Ospreys we have also had good views of Lizards and Red Squirrels. Both Dodd Wood and Whinlatter Forest Park were both recommended recently by the BBCs WildLife Magazine as good places to see Red Squirrels, something we’ve been saying for a long time. A Green Woodpecker has also been seen several times between the viewpoints. With just over a week to go before you lose the services of our trusty volunteers why not get along to the LDOP as soon as possible?
