Keeping an eye on the ospreys

Northumberland Wildlife Trust is calling for volunteers to help with the fourth Kielder Osprey Watch at Leaplish Waterside Park this summer.

For the past three years breeding pairs of ospreys have arrived in Kielder in March and early April and stayed until early Autumn.

Activity on the nest tends to be mainly throughout July and August as the chicks hatch, are fed and learn to fly and hunt.
