today's walk: Dodd via the osprey viewpoints


the head of Bassenthwaite Lake from the track to the upper osprey viewpoint


looking southwest over the River Derwent from the upper viewpoint


the new nest through a telescope - the white spot near the middle is the osprey on the nest


Grisedale Pike from the viewpoint - the new nest is in the trees beyond the foreground marsh


Barf and the head of Bass Lake from the viewpoint


the Vale of Keswick from the track beyond the viewpoint - now open since the ospreys have moved!
