Osprey cam

We are working to get this osprey web cam up and running for later in March 2019. Please will you make a donation to help with the running costs of this camera?

The daily action and life on the nest will be available for you to watch from the comfort of your home. So, you will be able to watch as osprey family life unfolds in front of your eyes.

You might even be the one who first spots the ospreys on the nest returning from their winter home – how exciting would that be?! (But please do tell us if you see them before us). 
If you can, please help by making a donation now  Donate to help now

Whatever you can afford to give will help with the cost for running and maintaining this web cam and to keeping Foulshaw Moss Nature Reserve the wonderful place it is for wildlife. Thank you.

About this breeding pair of ospreys 

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.

Had a lovely afternoon at Foulshaw Moss with my two littlest boys and we spotted 5 common lizards. They were thrilled! Love the new boardwalk.
