If you are coming to our Osprey Family Fun Day at Lyndon on 2nd August 2016, you will receive a ring, just like our ospreys! You can choose to be one of several different ospreys – see below to find out more about each one!
30(05) fledged from a Rutland nest in 2005. She is the satellite-tracked bird we follow. She bred from 2009-2012, raising a total of eight chicks; however she did not breed in 2013 or 14. In 2015 she paired up with male 32(11) and successfully bred!
32 was born in Manton Bay in 2011 to Maya and 5R(04). He bred for the first time in 2015, his partner was 30(05) – above! As such, he was the father of the 100th chick! He is the Rutland Osprey that the team discovered in Africa this year!
33(11) fledged from a Rutland nest in 2011. He returned in 2013 for the first time. In 2014 he won possession of the Manton Bay nest, and bred with the female there, Maya, in 2015 and 2016, raising three chicks each year.
T0 is the daughter of 30(05) and 32(11), born in 2015 along with her sister T1. T0 is a special young osprey as she was the 100th osprey chick to fledge from a nest in Rutland!
