A baby red squirrel was found in a critical condition in Bassenthwaite after being separated from it's mother.
The staff at Knoxwood Wildlife Rescue Trust in Wigton have been nursing him back to health, until he is strong enough to be released back into the wild.
One of Britain's rarest fish has made a welcome return to a lake in Cumbria.
The vendace had not been seen in Bassenthwaite Lake since 2000, until a single young fish was spotted last year.
Now a new survey appears to have uncovered hundreds of them.
Where have they all come from?
Matthew Taylor reports.
Britain's rarest freshwater fish is returning to Cumbria, more than a decade after being declared 'locally extinct'.
Two adult vendace were spotted during the annual fish survey of Bassenthwaite Lake. It's an improvement on last year's survey, which found a single young vendace.
A pair of ospreys has returned to nest near Bassenthwaite Lake in the Lake District. They managed to raise two chicks last year and wildlife experts hope they'll do it again. A camera has been installed, so anyone at the Whinlatter Visitors Centre can have a birds eye view of how they get on
Fish experts are concerned that stocks of our native species are declining in Cumbria's famous lakes - so the Environment Agency is trying a novel approach to protect them.
Protective shelters have been installed in Bassenthwaite Lake to help fish evade predators.
Patrol officers will use a remote controlled boat to help them check the shelters.
Matthew Taylor went to find out more.
The refuges protect growing fish from predators and will help the fish stocks in the area to increase.
It is the first time equipment like this has been used in the north of England.
The Environment Agency is revisiting a Cumbrian lake where hedgehog shaped refuges were installed last year to help protect fish stocks.
Bassenthwaite is the first English lake to use the spiky constructions which provide shelter and a safe haven from predators.
A remote control boat will help monitor how well they are working.
