The Rutland Osprey Project is celebrating another great year. And there is still time for you to join in the fun. So put on your Stetson, face your partner and move to the Fundraising Barn Dance at Manton Village Hall, Rutland, on Friday September 8 (7–11pm).
The project team has planned a fun-filled evening of dancing to music by the Navigation Band, socialising, drinking local ales provided by Patricia Clarke, and gorging on an all-you-can-eat hog roast provided by the Roasting Pig Co.
If you can’t dance, don’t worry – there is no requirement to do it properly, and a caller will shout out the moves!
There will be a raffle with some excellent prizes, including a session in the hide at the River Gwash Trout Farm next year, and many more gems!
But if you are not feeling energetic you don't have to leave the comfort of your own home to follow the progress of Rutland osprey 30(05) as she migrates to her wintering ground in Senegal.
The project team receives data from her satellite-tag every few days and will keep you updated via the website.
