The ospreys are back!

The Manton Bay ospreys – female Maya and male 33(11) are back at Rutland for the spring and summer after overwintering in Africa and have reunited at their nest. You can visit the Lyndon Visitor Centre at Rutland Water Nature Reserve to check the big screen and the latest news before taking the walk to the hide where volunteers from the Rutland Osprey Project will help you get the best view of the nest.

If you are not venturing out then keep up to date on www.ospreys.org.uk where you can watch the live webcam.

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?

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 are other events and a family fun day.
