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

2019 was the 11th successive year of Ospreys breeding in Kielder Forest. During that time, the population has grown from 1 to 6 breeding pairs, with other birds in the area each summer. In 2019, 2014 male Blue UV built a nest – the first Kielder hatched osprey to establish a territory in the Forest. He didn’t attract a female, but will 2020 be his year?

Over the winter, there will be updates on significant activity by the satellite tagged ospreys and news of any sightings.

On the right hand side of the home page there are links to posts about most nests, and also migration. By clicking on the relevant icon, you’ll see all the information about the subject for this year, plus many archived posts.
