In addition to the amazing partners at Kielder Water & Forest Park who support the Osprey Watch and make the location welcoming for Ospreys each year, a very big thank you to all this years’ Osprey Watch Volunteers. Without the volunteers we could not show off these amazing birds direct to the public. Your commitment and dedication is remarkable and the visitors love the information you share.
We were grateful to receive grants of £500 from the Bellingham Fund and £1,430 from the Northumberland National Park Authority to assist with volunteer travel expenses, volunteer clothing and promotional leaflets this year. The donations from
visitors on site and via the Northumberland Wildlife Trust donations page have also been used to help fund these expenses.
Hopefully the donations will continue to come in so that with our volunteers we can run and improve Osprey Watch again next year for avid Osprey Watch visitors.
