About the #FoulshawMoss breeding pair of ospreys
The ospreys that favour Foulshaw Moss Nature Reserve, near Witherslack, as their breeding ground, migrate to their wintering grounds - most likely West Africa or Europe - in Autumn.
The male osprey, identified by his 'White YW' leg ring, hatched at Bassenthwaite in 2008. The female osprey, identified by her 'Blue 35' leg ring, hatched at Kielder in 2010. Read about their offspring here.
If you can, please help by making a donation now.
