Returning Ospreys

If you are visiting Landal Kielder Waterside over the next couple of weeks, keep your eyes on the skies as the famous Ospreys are expected to return!

Ospreys have been spotted closer and closer to Northumberland in recent days, suggesting an imminent return to Kielder and the first sighting in the county could only be days away.

In 2018, 8 young ospreys – Blackaburn, Bywell, Bamburgh, Broomlee, Binky, Byrness, Beldon and Belling – were among those that migrated for warmer climes in late August, or early September. It was the second year that the Kielder osprey chicks had been given names, this time all beginning in B. The 2019 chicks will be named using the initial C.

Shortly after the birds have returned, visitors will be able to enjoy Osprey Watch and observe the birds on nest 1A using telescopes, and the live nestcam network provided by the Forestry Commission. Northumberland Wildlife Trust will be running Osprey Watch from Landal Kielder Waterside between 10.30am and 5:00pm every Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday (and extra Wednesdays in July and August) from Saturday 20 April until Sunday 18 August.
