Bassenthwaite Osprey lays an egg or eggs?

By News

Bassenthwaite Ospreys can be viewed within walking distance from the park. In Dodd Wood there are viewing points with telescopes overlooking the nest and feeding sites on the lake.

The behaviour of Unring and his new mate has changed. All activity has been focussed on the nest, with the female sitting down in the nest cup on the platform they have decided upon this year. Over the next few days she continued to sit low in the nest cup, displaying the  distinctive ‘shuffle’ where the egg would be turned over. A good clutch for an osprey is 3 eggs, laid at 2 day intervals. As a young bird this female may not have achieved this – but certainly she has at least one.

Bassenthwaite Ospreys Return

By News

Bassenthwaite’s male Osprey Unring has returned and can been seen from the Dodd Wood view point wooing a new female. Visitors have been watching the pair flying up and down the length of the marshes from the viewing point.

Unrings offspring from 2013 who was electronically tagged has also just returned and is expected to start nest building and looking for a female.

If your currently staying here keep you eyes peeled as they can also been seen fishing in the lake from some of our decks!
