Spring 2019


The ospreys are back at Rutland Water and we are looking for new Osprey Ambassadors - more details will follow on how to apply.


Check out the webcam for the sight of Mia and her 4 eggs and Dad Osprey No 33.



Autumn 2018


The ospreys have left and are well on their way to their winter homes in Africa. Our new Ambassadors will be providing us with updates and keeping us informed of progress.


We have been grateful for the help of Richon and Sam however the boys have now left the school for new adventures and we will soon be recruiting new ambassadors to work alongside Jasmine!


More information will follow soon!

Our Osprey Ambassadors have been working hard to keep us all up to date with the events at Manton Bay and we are waiting for the young birds to make their first flight! Keep a watch on the webcam to spot the great event!

March 2018


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...
