Rutland Water’s ospreys are reported to be arriving back at their nests safe and sound after their winter sojourn in West Africa. They have made it on to the BBC News UK Homepage where they have some cracking photos of them clearing out and defending their old nests. I especially love the upside down osprey doing some spring cleaning – brilliant shot! Also a superb image of one of the males taking on a pair of interlopers – a real don’t mess with me attitude!
The Osprey Project at Rutland Water Nature Reserve is without doubt one of the most popular attractions in Rutland and is perfectly set up for visitors of all ages with webcams, guided walks, osprey and wildlife cruises and family fun days throughout the season. This really is an experience not to be missed!
