Yesterday, the Lyndon Visitor Centre closed its doors to the public for the final time in 2015. The Ospreys had already left, and there is now no denying that the end of the season is upon us. Whilst we all feel a bit teary at the end of the season, there is no cause to be sad, as life does not stop when the Ospreys leave, and we can always look back on what an amazing season it has been.
Thanks must go out to everyone who is involved in the Osprey Project, both staff and volunteers, for all their hard work, commitment and dedication throughout the season. If I started writing names, there would be an enormous list, so I won’t, but you know who you are – thank you.
It goes without saying that we could not function without our team of volunteers, who monitor the Ospreys from arrival to departure. Every year, at the end of the season, we have a get-together for all of the Osprey volunteers in order to thank them for their efforts. Last night, we hosted our volunteers’ party for 2015! It was a super evening, and a good time was had by all. There was a fish and chip supper, a light-hearted quiz, and last but not least, a little video that we put together of the Manton Bay highlights to music! Because this video was enjoyed so much, we thought we should share it here on the website, so it can be watched by all! We hope you enjoy it!
The Lyndon Centre may be closed, but work will not cease over the winter – there is much to do to keep the reserve running and prepare for next season. Keep an eye on the website, as we will keep updating it, albeit on a more infrequent basis, throughout the winter. Many thanks to all our visitors, and followers on the website. The Lyndon Centre will re-open its doors on Saturday 12th March 2016 – we’ll see you next year!
