It’s confirmed that there is a pair of ospreys back on the original nest at Kielder Water. They will have made a 5,000-mile journey north, returning successfully from their African winter away. This is the fourth year in a row that ospreys have been spotted at Kielder and in the last three years they bred successfully. It is hoped that they will raise their chicks again at Kielder Water this year.
Wildlife lovers are being asked to scan the skies for signs that rare ospreys have returned to Kielder Water & Forest Park. The iconic species – which was extinct in England as a breeding bird for over 150 years – nested in the North East for the first time in over two centuries in 2009.
