I heard about the Osprey Project at Countryfile and I wanted to see the birds. The day we’ve been there it was foggy, but we both managed to see them. We parked at Dodd Wood carpark and we climbed to the first viewing point. The live CCTV coverage of the nest wasn’t available anymore, as the “little” one was bigger than her parents and ready to leave the nest.
There is another viewing point, with lots of signs towards them. The board estimates the walk at 20 minutes, but it took us only 10 minutes.
The Osprey Project is located in Dodd Woods. There are a few waymarked trails through the woods. Near the car park there is a cute tearoom called The Old Sawmill.
While we were enjoying our cakes I saw that 50% of the sales of the squirrel biscuits are donated to a foundation that helps the red squirrel. We had to get 2 biscuits, it was for the squirrels (and they were delicious).
