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

2018 will be the 10th successive year of Ospreys breeding in Kielder Forest. During that time, the population has grown from 1 to 4 breeding pairs, with other birds in the area each summer. As usual, we aim to update the website regularly, courtesy of the nest cameras provided by Forestry Commission England and other sources of news.

We have introduced some layout changes for 2018. On the right hand side of this new home page there are links to posts about each individual nest, and also migration. By clicking on the relevant image, you’ll see all the information about the subject for this year, plus some archived posts for the nests.

If you wish to scroll through all posts, click on “Blog” in the top menu bar.

The search tool should enable you to find posts mentioning specific subjects eg entering “Blue 35”  will bring up posts mentioning her.

If you sign up to “Follow Blog via Email”, you’ll receive notification of new posts on any topic as soon as they are published.

Key news items will be displayed below for a short time.
