One of our avid followers, Vivinfrance, has writen this poem to welcome back the Kielder Ospreys.
Long and anxiously awaited, their landing
witnessed with delight.
From far West Africa their epic voyage
has brought them home again at last.
Through prolonged and foul migration they have battled
to survive, and now, triumphant they arrive alive:
Two welcome pairs of ospreys, determined
to reclaim their nests.
A crucial nestoration starts,
for mates and brood to share.
Shy of human company, in a world wild and watery,
they dive into Kielder in a shower of diamonds.
With brave tenacity
_____they’ll fish and feed and
__________teach and feed and fish
_______________until at last their precious
