Ship to shore

Now summer is here we are running Osprey Cruises every week! They have proven extremely popular – spaces are selling at a fast rate of knots! We have run four cruises so far, and the latest one, on Saturday 21st June, was one of the best! Two Ospreys were seen, one of which made several attempts at fishing! Unfortunately, his attempts were unsuccessful, but it was great to watch him try, and everyone got brilliant views. We also had great views of Buzzard, Red Kite, Great Crested Grebe, Cormorants and Common Terns. The weather was pretty good too, bright and a bit breezy, nice weather for sailing serenely on the largest man-made reservoir in Britain!

There are only ten spaces left on the next two afternoon Osprey cruises, on Wednesday 2nd July and Saturday 12th July. If you’re interested in joining us for an amazing experience aboard the Rutland Belle, you’d better book in fast! Click here for more details.

The first two dawn cruises have sold out, on 28th June and 19th July. However, there is one more that is not yet full! Book now to secure a place on 9th August!

    Is the osprey just to the right of the spire up above the trees? I think it’s
    carrying a fish!

      Very funny Mum! No, that’s not it. I think I’ve found it though – to the right of the church, level with the square top and just below the top of the lighter coloured trees…
