First Kielder ‘grandchicks’ take to the air!

Avid osprey fans will no doubt have seen the CWT Foulshaw Moss blog announcing that their chicks have fledged. Wonderful news for them, and for us because the adult female is 2010 Kielder born Blue 35. So the three young fledglings are our first ‘grandchicks’ as far as we know.

This is another major step in the re-establishment of ospreys in in the north of England. Our congratulations to CWT on a great first breeding season. And many thanks for their generosity in sharing their images with us. Here are a few of the latest photos.
