Osprey cam

This wildlife cam is now offline until spring 2022

The ospreys have flown the nest and left Foulshaw Moss Nature Reserve. So, the live osprey webcam is now offline until next spring.

In the meantime, enjoy some of the recorded footage of the ospreys or read a Foulshaw Ospreys blog here.

If you enjoy watching this osprey family via these cameras – please will you help with the running costs?

 👉If you can help, please make a donation here

It cost us around £11,000 to get and keep these cameras running for the 2021 osprey season. If you are able to, please donate towards these costs. Thank you.

A huge thank you for your donations towards Foulshaw Moss Nature Reserve and the osprey cam. We could not maintain this precious rare habitat or indeed provide the insight to the nest without your incredibly generous support.

Remember, Foulshaw Moss Nature Reserve is open for you to visit all year round. With lots of species to see, beautiful habitat to enjoy and a boardwalk to give you easy access.
