World Osprey Week 2021 - 22nd - 26th March

World Osprey Week celebrates ospreys as they make their spring migrations to their nesting grounds. Founded by Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust, this week-long event aims to enthuse and educate people, in particular children, about this brilliant bird of prey. From tracking treacherous migrations, to understanding their repopulation of Scotland, World Osprey Week provides an opportunity to weave the excitement of ospreys into learning about geography, history and science.

This year we have connected with 5 other Osprey groups to form an Osprey Network – Birds of Poole Harbour, Cumbria Wildlife Trust, Glaslyn Wildlife, Osprey Leadership Foundation and Scottish Wildlife Trust… and hopefully some familiar Ospreys!
