The Rutland Osprey Project at Birdfair 2019

We have had another wonderful Birdfair, the weather conditions were challenging, but nobody really minded.

Muddy conditions on site didn’t dampen spirits.

Our brilliant education team entertained visitors with The Migration Game,

everybody enjoyed playing and learning about the osprey’s journey and the perils that our birds may encounter en-route, as they journey 4,000km to the west coast of Africa.

We gave pop-up talks about our 2019 season, these attracted crowds eager to hear about the success of the re-introduction project, especially as this year we’ve now had our 150th chick since the project began.

Sam, one of our osprey ambassadors, interviewed Birdfair celebrities, including Mike Dilger,

and Nick Baker.

The three days flew by, visitors enjoyed celebrity osprey cruises, visiting the Rutland Osprey Project stand, listening to insightful talks from our education team, hearing from our volunteers and staff about our fantastic osprey season, one of our most successful ever.

Great fun was had by all.  Roll on 2020!
