Osprey Translocation Project – Video Blog 2 – 13/03/20

The Osprey season is officially upon us – this week the first first Osprey, a nesting female, has returned to Rutland Water. Amongst this excitement is our anticipation for our new livestream webcam to go live. Over the past few weeks, the Wildlife Windows team, partners in the Poole Harbour Osprey Project, have been busy installing the camera, as well as doing maintenance and making improvements to several artificial nest platforms.

The fantastic support of our winter fundraiser allowed us to purchase and install the webcam, along with other important aspects of the project, including motion-sensitive cameras on other nest platforms. The new webcam should be streaming on our website in the next week or so, and, once our HQ on Poole Qay reopens, we hope to have it streaming live on screens in there too. Thank you to all who have donated and sponsored us throughout the fundraiser, the response has been immense. You can still support the Osprey project fundraiser through our Just Giving page or through coming along on our Osprey Fundraiser Cruise in May, which has been kindly sponsored by Osprey Europe.

Our latest video blog discusses the new camera installation, which you can watch here:
