We had a visit from the osprey team at Lyndon Nature Reserve on Friday 16th March! This is start of the osprey season and we have been finding out which of the birds are back and which are still on their way.
The team have launched a new competition for this year and children can paint a picture of the Osprey, write a poem or create a fantastic story about ospreys. There is something for everyone to work on. Children can do one, two or all three of the competitions. Our Osprey Ambassadors will be giving out more details in the next few weeks. The closing date for entries is 26th May 2018.
We have a new Osprey Ambassador to work alongside Sam Shepard this year and we welcome Jasmine Manton to the role. Our Ambassadors will be updating the osprey board and keeping us up to date on developments.
We also have our trips booked to see the ospreys at the centre!
More news to follow as the story develops...
Summer Term Osprey News
We have 3 new Osprey Ambassadors Eloise Lewin, Sam Shepherd and Maria Smith and they are running our 'Flappers' Osprey Club on a Thursday Lunchtimes.
The children are learning about the Ospreys in the nests around Rutland water. We are all very excited about the news of 4 eggs in the nest for Osprey No. 33 and Maya, the happy osprey pair!
Follow the link to the Manton Bay webcam and keep up with all the news - apparently the ospreys never seem to sleep!
