How’s the Easter egg hunt coming along?

We’re back with some more clues to put a spring in your step and help you find the hidden osprey eggs.

Cumbria Willdife Trust is helping to protect wildlife for the future. The Trust creates and looks after 38 nature reserves you can visit as well as inspiring the next generation to nurture and protect wildlife.

The Trust is a membership charity tackling some of the biggest threats to Cumbria's wildlife. Caring people, like you, regularly support the Trust, making a difference for wildlife and wild places in Cumbria through either their individual membership, joint membership or family membership.

If you go to our membership page on our website it might help you in the quest for your next egg or eggs. You’ll find that page even quicker by clicking on the frog picture on our homepage!

From Cumbria’s diverse coastline, limestone pavements and outstanding wetland habitats, to the flower-rich hay meadows, ancient woodlands and even up to the montane flora on the highest fells – our wildlife is part of who we are.

There are some eggs hidden within the Wildlife pages, but which one? Here’s another clue… My Wild Life is about people from all walks of life showing how nature is helping us all, everyday.

In autumn last year the first ever grey seal pup was born within Cumbria’s only grey seal colony at our nature reserve at Walney Island. Despite seals using the protected beaches to haul out and rest at the nature reserve for decades, never before had a seal pup been recorded on the island.

Venture over to this beautiful coastal wildlife haven located at the southern end of the island and seek out the hidden eggs. Be careful you don’t mix them up with the gulls’ eggs though, every spring large numbers of lesser black backed and herring gulls return to set up their nest territories too!

That’s all, until tomorrow. Good luck!

p.s – To enter, remember to comment on our original blog with the number of eggs you find. If you missed our first lot of clues yesterday, don’t worry, check this page out
