The Rutland Osprey Project is in its 20th year and the project team are eagerly awaiting the return of ospreys to Rutland Water for the spring and summer after overwintering in Africa.
Satellite tracking data indicates the birds are on their way - follow the latest news from the project website at www.ospreys.org.uk
Rutland Water is home to the first ospreys to breed in England for 150 years, after a successful translocation programme. Why not plan a visit to see and learn about these fantastic fish eating hawks?
Lyndon Visitor Centre at Rutland Water Nature Reserve re-opened on Saturday 12th March for the summer season and will be open every day until September.
One of the most exciting ways of seeing the ospreys at Rutland Water is to take a guided Osprey and Wildlife Cruise with members of the Rutland Osprey Project team aboard the Rutland Belle. In addition there is a programme of guided walks and a family fun day.
