A week today…

A week today and it’s the Osprey Project’s annual Family Fun Day! Held on the first Tuesday in August (this year 2nd Aug) at the Lyndon Nature Reserve, this day of fun incorporates ospreys, games, activities and a migration through the nature reserve…

Children will get to be an osprey for the day, with their very own “leg ring”! The Lyndon Centre will be England, then you will head through the reserve through France and Spain on your way to Africa! There will be five stops on the way, and at each stop there will be a game to play, something to make or something to see. After each activity you will receive a stamp on your “passport” to prove that you have done it. When you reach Waderscrape hide, the Education Team will be there to welcome you and help you to see the ospreys and complete your migration.

For an extra £2, you can have a copy of “Be an Osprey Expert”, written by two of our Education Officers and full of questions, facts and quizzes for you to fill in on the way to Waderscrape. There is a certificate in the back of the book which will be signed for you on completion!



Osprey Family Fun Days are always lot of fun!

On top of all that, the talented Carole Brookes of “Nature Knits” is making a one-off appearance at our Fun Day, selling special hand-made ospreys, puppets, bags, hats, scarves and so much more, not just of ospreys but other wildlife too! These are limited edition, on this day only!
