Bassenthwaite Lake
Lake District Osprey ProjectLake District Osprey Project
In 2001 a pair of ospreys which nested in the Lake District became the first wild osprey to breed in the Lake District for over 150 years. The birds have spent the summer in this area for the past few years. The birds were encouraged to stay with the help of a purpose built nest provided by the Forestry Commission and the Lake District National Park Authority.

Osprey: Spirit of the Lakes DVD

DVD. The beautiful Bassenthwaite Lake is the setting for this film which follows the return of one of nature's most spectacular birds of prey, the Osprey. Persecuted by man in the past, it is over 150 years since ospreys bred in the Lake District. This film gives a rare insight into the lives of a magnificent male Osprey, known as "No-ring, and his two successive mates who produced 19 chicks from 2001 to 2009. His fishing prowess is legendary. The Lake District Osprey Project was formed in 2000 from The Forestry Commission, The Lake District National park Authority and the R.S.P.B. to manage this project. (which will receive a donation from the sale of this DVD). Staff and volunteers from the project have given protection to these vulnerable birds and also allowed over half a million visitors to see and learn about the ospreys.
