Foulshaw Moss

First time visit for me to this excellent Cumbria Wildlife Trust reserve to see the breeding Ospreys.

The young are now fully able to fly and so the family of 2 adults and 3 young are ranging widely. The nest can be seen in the distance from the viewing area. 1 youngster flew in and settled down on the nest. A second bird was seen circling in the distance and mobbed by a Buzzard.

Other sightings:
1 Sparrowhawk wizzed past close-by clutching a prey item
2 Blackcap

The feeding station had:
1 Great Spotted Woodpecker. Another was in a tree close by.
2 Siskin
A family of Greenfinch
A few Chaffinch, Blue and Great Tits

The place is alive with dragonflies, damselflies, butterflies and insects with a great variety of bog plants. A lovely place with helpful friendly staff volunteers and definitely one I will be returning to.

(Then it was off back to Condor Green for the Temmincks Stint!)
