Welcome to the Kielder Osprey Project website. You can read more about the Project’s partners here.

Here is a message from the partners, as the response to Covid 19 continues to evolve:-

We know people want to start visiting the area again, but hope you understand that any measures we take need to be done in a way that is safe for you, local communities, and fellow visitors, and is in line with Government guidance.

Please, if you do visit, be respectful of the local communities. Stay away from village and residential centres, and strictly observe Government guidelines on social distancing wherever you are in the Park.

As much as possible, please continue to stay local and exercise close to home.

2019 was the 11th successive year of Ospreys breeding in Kielder Forest. During that time, the population grew from 1 to 6 breeding pairs, with other birds in the area each summer
This year a new platform has been occupied and has chicks. UV and Scottish PC8 are occupying Nest 5A. UV is the first osprey hatched in Kielder Forest to settle here.  Sadly, their eggs have not hatched.
