What a fantastic week it has turned out to be here at Lyndon Nature Reserve! Despite having to close the Visitor Centre as a result of the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis, the Ospreys have of course, been keeping us very busy and our moods positively elevated (mine personally, is through the roof)!
Since our first Osprey arrived back on 13th March, the past week has seen four more individuals return to Rutland, including our most iconic pair, Maya and 33(11), from the Manton Bay nest. These two, astonishingly, returned within hours of each other, with 33 making his debut on the webcam at around 07:00, and Maya making her first appearance at lunchtime! Though these two arrived on the same day, it is very unlikely that they travelled together, though it is sometimes nice to think, as Ospreys complete their migrations alone.
