Cruising into Summer

The Easter holidays are in full swing, your to-do lists are getting longer and longer, whilst the creativity is dwindling for ideas to entertain your offspring.. well have no fear! Lyndon Visitor’s centre is here! We’re about to launch our Easter trail on our beautiful reserve which will teach families and kids all about new life and the baby animals you can expect to see out and about this Spring! The challenge is to find all 12 clues and put them all together to find the secret password! If you guess it right there’s a prize at the end! We also have an indoor fun Egg-themed fact finding challenge, should the weather be too foul or the little legs too tired! We will be running the trail from Monday 15th April till Sunday 28th April, it’s £3 a go, and in return you’ll receive activity sheets and a final prize of an Easter egg and official Rutland Osprey wristband! There’s plenty of other activities going on from the center too, including I-spy games, colouring and Osprey mask making.

These 90 minute cruises will take you on a tour of Rutland water, showcasing the wildlife and history of the reserves, helping you relax but also inspiring you and perhaps you might see something you’ve never seen before! There’s even the chance to get refreshments on board and enjoy a glimpse of the infamous Ospreys! Check out our facebook page for the full list of events and book your place with us now! Places are selling fast! You can also find the info on the cruises on our main website ‘Book your cruise place’ page https://www.ospreys.org.uk/events/ it’s a fantastic opportunity to unwind, learn about nature and see some fantastic wildlife up close as you’ve never seen it before!
