Welcome to the live webcam on the osprey nest at Foulshaw Moss Nature Reserve
If you enjoy watching this osprey family via these cameras – please will you help with the running costs?
It costs 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.
Click the arrows to watch the cameras live from the nest on Foulshaw Moss Nature Reserve.
Please be patient if there is a problem with either camera, whilst we don't have a member of staff dedicated solely to the cameras and osprey work, we will be working getting it back up and running. In the meantime, you can enjoy some recorded footage of the ospreys here.
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. Thank you.
Please stay with us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and we'll keep you updated. Join in the conversation using #FoulshawOspreys

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.
