Rutland Water prepare to welcome the ospreys back

Osprey chicks in their nest at Rutland Water

Preparations are underway at Rutland Water as the Osprey Project gets ready to welcome the birds back for the summer.

The ospreys, many of whom were born in Manton Bay, are getting ready to migrate back from their winter homes in West Africa, Spain and Portugal.

15 chicks were fledged last season, from 8 breeding pairs.
