Weekend event at Kielder Castle

This weekend is the ‘Welcome home to the Ospreys’ event at Kielder Castle.  We have published the summary video of the 2013 highlights for Nest 1 today.

There are also experts available at the Castle to answer your queries and the video is showing in the visitor centre.  There will be a free guided walk from the Castle to the Bakethin bird hide.  We may be lucky and see ospreys fishing.  There are other nesting birds to see from the hide and the spring flowering woodland plants are starting to appear along the way.

      The walk was lots of fun – lovely 8 adults and 8 toddlers who walked to the viaduct from which they were happy to make their own way back so I could join a couple of photographers in the bird hide who did not want to do the long walk. No ospreys seen but herons, oystercatchers, canada geese, mallard, great crested grebe and cormorants drying their wings.

    The mallards were showing off their 8+ ducklings on the Sunday walk. Still no osprey.

    I would like to say I had seen an osprey from bakethin hide on the 31st march this year and what a sight it was to see it hunting.

      I am very jealous Brian. Neither Joanna or I have seen them at Bakethin. Sally

        Yes it was approx, 10.45 am it hovered above bakethin dropped its legs then dived towards the water then aborted at the last moment. It is asight I will never forget.
