Regular readers may remember that last summer we learnt that Blue 35, a female born in 2010 on Kielder Nest 1 to the original breeding pair on that nest, had a failed nesting attempt at Foulshaw Moss in South Cumbria. This is a Cumbria Wildlife Trust reserve. Here is a link to a blog CWT have set up; Blue 35 is back and has a different male to last year. That male was unringed, this year she is with White YW, a 2008 born Bassenthwaite osprey. So keeping it in the Forestry Commission North England region family!
Here’s hoping there is news of the first known Kielder ‘grandchild’ this year.
