    Sarah-Jane Cherrie will film and photograph the ospreys in their nest, near Bassenthwaite, for the next three years.
     
    The 42-year-old, who is studying wildlife and media at the University of Cumbria, spent the summer volunteering for the Lake District Osprey Project, and so impressed its bosses they asked her to continue on an official basis.
     
    She said that she had to enlist the help of her husband in getting close to her subject.
    "The birds weren't where they were supposed to go, but had nested down in a field," she said.
     
    Ms Cherrie had worked in media, marketing and events around the world, and taught business in Russia and Libya, before returning to her native Cumbria 18 months ago.
