Osprey Cruise Voucher 2020 – the perfect Christmas gift!
One of the most exciting ways of seeing Ospreys at Rutland Water is to take a guided trip with members of the Osprey project team aboard the Rutland Belle. We sail to parts of the reservoir where we stand the best chance of seeing fishing Ospreys and with a bit of luck are rewarded with spectacular views. On many occasions we have enjoyed breathtaking views of the birds diving for fish, making it a trip to remember. Even on those occasions when Ospreys prove elusive, there is always a good range of the reservoir’s other wildlife on view. Highlights have included Little Egret, Arctic Tern, Fulmar, Sanderling and Knot.
