Join our experienced volunteers at Osprey Watch who will help you to observe the beautiful Kielder Ospreys. At Osprey Watch you can see all the action close up through a live camera feed plus see if you can spot the birds on their nest using high powered telescopes. Trained volunteers will be on hand to answer any questions you have.
Ospreys have been residing at Kielder since 2009, previous to which they were extinct for over 200 years in Northumberland. You can find out more about the journey of Kielder Ospreys here.
The Ospreys breed in pairs and come to England from around March until September. After this they migrate to Africa where they spend the winter season in warmer climates.
Ospreys were once an endangered bird and are now a big part of Kielder. To encourage Ospreys to the area, the Forestry Commission added platforms for them in 2008. Since 2009 these platforms have worked with Ospreys building their nests, breeding and returning each year.
Osprey Watch is open Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays from 15 April until 14 August.
