OZZIE’S RETURN by Ken Davies
Ozzie has now grown up in Africa and after two years is ready to make his first migration back to Rutland Water where he was “born”. Who will he meet and what will he see on his journey north? The story is once again based on real events and is written by Ken Davies and with colour illustrations by John Wright, Field Officer on the Rutland Osprey Project.
OZZIE LEADS THE WAY by Ken Davies
Four thousand kilometres apart, two groups of young people are united as they track and study an osprey migrating over the sea, mountains and desert…..
This novel by Ken Davies is based on the real life of an osprey. It describes how a group of children and their teacher see an osprey near Rutland Water, and follows the osprey’s adventures through Europe and to Africa where Ozzie experiences a new life and people in other cultures.
The beautiful colour illustrations, and black and white drawings by Fiona Gomez add a pictorial dimension to Ken’s narrative about the people and places in this story.
