The Manton Bay female, an unringed Scottish bird, has arrived back in Manton Bay; she is the third bird back in Rutland this Spring.
This is the fourth year she has returned to Rutland Water. In previous years 5R(04) has been here to greet her but this year she will just have join us in the wait for his return.
Since arriving at 11am this morning she has spent the last half hour on the nest, check out the webcam.
We’ll update you again this afternoon, and you never know we may even have news of more arrivals! Fingers crossed.
