Bassenthwaite Lake, a finger of water lying tranquilly under the lofty bulk of Skiddaw, is indelibly linked with the spectacular sight of ospreys swooping over the lake and diving for fish in its waters.
This national nature reserve, fringed with a mosaic of reed beds, fen marshland, woodlands and wild flower meadows, is rich in wildlife.
A lottery-funded scheme, Bassenthwaite Reflections, is helping to protect the lake's vulnerable plant and animal life through community involvement.
