25 years of the Rutland Osprey Project!
This year marks 25 years since the start of the Rutland Osprey Project, one of the UK's greatest conservation success stories. The work of the project has led to the triumphant return of ospreys to Rutland Water and this year we welcomed our 200th chick!
We want to ensure ospreys can thrive in central England for the next 25 years, please support our fundraising appeal so we can continue the vital work we do to protect this magnificent bird of prey.
Rutland Osprey Nest Cam Live Stream
Get a front row view of our Manton Bay Osprey nest at Rutland Water Nature Reserve, where our star pair female Maya and male 33(11) have bred together since 2015.
Thanks to generous donations to our Osprey Webcam Appeal, we have now installed brand new camera equipment. Our new webcams give a better view and can zoom, pan, and tilt! Not only this, but we have made sure the new system incorporates sound, giving you a fuller experience and deeper insight into the behaviour of breeding ospreys! So make sure you turn the sound up!
*Our ospreys have now left for the winter, stay tuned for their return in 2022!*
