  1. Three rare ospreys ringed in Kielder

    Nature: Three rare ospreys have been ringed to help experts keep tabs on them.

    The birds are the offspring of a pioneering pair which last year raised the first osprey family in north-east England for at least 200 years.

    The 155,000-acre Kielder wilderness is only the second place in England that ospreys have naturally recolonised after being persecuted to extinction in the 19th century.
