Lake District Osprey Project

Here they are - 2 eggs have been produced at the Lake District Osprey Project!

For the fourteenth year in a row ospreys are breeding near Bassenthwaite Lake, and are using a nest near the Lake which has been previously occupied. The nest has a High Definition camera, with live pictures being sent to the viewing area at Whinlatter (just twenty minutes from Red Hall Farm).  You can also visit open air viewpoints at Dodd Wood which is just a short drive away from Red Hall Farm Holiday Cottages.

The male osprey sees the first egg for the first time...wonder what he thinks about number 2!

 

The male (left) sees egg number 1 for the first time as KL looks on. The egg was laid just after 4pm, the rest of the clutch should follow over the coming week....fingers and talons crossed ! (thanks to one of our volunteer team, Allan, for the update)

Beautiful location, very central (we visited Penrith, Carlisle, Gretna Green and Keswick).
The property has been converted to a high standard and beds were comfortable.
Lots of nice touches such as jam, eggs and cake upon arrival and Joanne even put the log burner on for us before we arrived so that the cottage was warmed up for us.
There is a lot of information from tourist areas locally, which is extremely helpful if you are not familiar with the area.
Lovely relaxing break, hope to visit again soon.
