Hopes are high that a new pair of ospreys in Cumbria will make it 13 years of successful breeding at a site near Bassenthwaite.

Both of the birds are unringed and experts believe they are new to the area.

The first osprey egg in Scotland was laid at the Tweed Valley Osprey Project near Peebles the Scottish Borders last week.
