Rutland Water Ospreys

Three was definitely a crowd ! The pair went into 'protect eggs' mode and spread their wings out so the roving osprey couldn't see them. It was fantastic to watch this on the big screen in the hide.

With little else locally to go and see, we headed off to Rutland Water to see the ospreys. We haven't been here for some years so it made a nice change. Plenty of ospreys back, but this was the only pair that we could see, the rest being on private land. Still, was more than happy to watch this pair (although distant), the close up images were shown on the big screen in the new hide, well impressed! They were sitting on 3 eggs.
