CJ7 and LS7 in 2019 taken using motion-sensitive camera

During the winter of 2019-2020 we hosted a fundraiser for an Osprey nest live-stream camera to be installed for the Osprey season in 2020. We received great support during the campaign, including sponsorship from our partners Osprey Europe along with the Fine Family Foundation and a numerous donations from kind members of the public. At this exciting time in the project, when we are on the cusp of potential breeding on the South Coast for the first time in almost 200 years, we want to be able to document the return of these amazing birds, and share this experience with the public through a webcam. If you want to help and support the continued developments of our Osprey project, head to our Just Giving page. We are also hosting a final fundraising cruise on the 10th of May this year, sponsored by Osprey Europe, from which all the proceeds go towards our campaign!

Our new Poole Harbour Osprey Nest Cam is NOW LIVE…… just in time 2020 breeding season! Whether we see a nesting attempt this spring is up to the Ospreys, but what we hope we can provide is a fascinating insight in to the comings and goings of some of Poole Harbours most incredible birds. For the safety and security of the nest, we don’t initially plan to state where this platform is, but will liaise with the landowner about future opportunities should we deem it safe and responsible to do so. We kindly ask for your cooperation in that if you know where this platform is please don’t announce its location on social media.

So, HUGE THANKS to everyone that contributed towards this project and……WE HOPE YOU ENJOY THIS NEW ADVENTURE!
