Double success for Northumberland ospreys

5 Jul

News today that the Osprey project at Kielder has not only had one succesful breeding pair this summer, but also a second pair have hatched a chick.

This is the only place in England where naturally-recolonising ospreys have had two succesful nests at the same time.

We were up there on Sunday but we didn’t make it as far as the watch point – would have been nice to see them. No photos of the Kielder ospreys so I’ll have to make do with this poor record shot I got earlier in the summer from North Yorkshire :

    Thanks for promoting our Kielder Osprey Watch blog. I am very impressed with your photography. Please let us know if you come across any more ospreys in Northumberland on your wanderings.
