Since 2016, BASC has been actively looking after ospreys through the BASC Osprey Project. From April until August, a recommended 600m – wide disturbance-free zones are created around their nests, which means no shooting, of any kind, can take place nearby.
It’s the first initiative of this kind and magnitude taken on by BASC. The aim of the project is to carry on the conservation work and support the ospreys’ colonisation of England and Wales.
