Family Fun Day

With the school summer holidays now underway we’re looking forward to our Osprey Extravaganza family fun day.

Next Friday, 26th July, we will be hosting our annual fun day with lots of activities throughout the day for the whole family.

On arrival all our young visitors will be ringed as one of the Rutland Ospreys.

During the day there will be ongoing games designed to teach young people about the Ospreys, including fishing games and some relating to the migration route. We’ll have an arts and crafts tent as well as a chance to make a bug box to take home and to learn how our volunteers monitor the birds.

Reserve Officer Lloyd Park will be holding bird ringing demonstrations throughout the day for those of all ages.

There will be guided walks with our staff and volunteers through the nature reserve as we follow Ozzie the Osprey’s journey along his migration to the Osprey Viewpoint in Waderscrape hide.

Bring your family along for what promises to be a fun filled day for everyone.
