Osprey live nest cam at Foulshaw Moss Nature Reserve

The ospreys that favour Foulshaw Moss Nature Reserve near Witherslack as their breeding ground migrate to their wintering grounds in Autumn, most likely West Africa or Europe. The male, identified by his 'White YW' leg ring, hatched at Bassenthwaite in 2008. The female, identified by her 'Blue 35' leg ring, hatched at Kielder in 2010. We're expecting them both to return at the beginning of April though they may arrive early!
