Reserve Expert – Summer School 2019

Reserve Expert – Summer School 2019 

Supported by the Cameron Bespolka Trust         





Are you between 8 and 16 years old?

Do you want to become a “Reserve Expert”?

In 2019, we can offer young people the chance to work with our Rutland Ospreys team to learn more about birds and other wildlife on the Lyndon reserve at Rutland Water,  home of the Rutland Ospreys.

There will be lots to do, with plenty of activity sessions including bird ringing, an osprey study, bird identification using visual and sound clues, a feather and an owl pellet study, and more!

You also get the chance to visit the hide to see the Rutland ospreys and find out more about tracking and monitoring these birds.

We will give you a “log book” to note down what you do during the day, so you can tell your friends when you get home.

At the end of the day you will be given a certificate showing you are a “Reserve Expert”!
