Competition time!

Last year we ran a competition at the beginning of the season, asking you all to guess when you think the first Osprey will arrive in Manton Bay. As it was so successful, we’ve decided to do it again this season!

So, the question is: When will the first Osprey arrive in Manton Bay this year?

The Osprey must land on the nest and be verified by a member of staff.

Please guess the date and a specific time, and the closest one will win two vouchers for an Osprey cruise on the Rutland Belle!

Submit your answers either on here or on our Facebook page. Please only guess once, this needs to be fair!

Many thanks, and happy guessing!

Leaving for her first fishing expedition

The Manton Bay female, Maya, arrived back on 17 March last year

    Looking forward to watching the Ospreys this year. The new cameras sound good – we’ve had good views of the birds feeding on the perch from the hide in previous years.
