The story so far…

It’s hard to believe that 5R has been back in Rutland for 44 days now and after all the drama with 5N and 00(09) at the beginning of the season the resident pair have been incubating their full clutch for 12 days. The video below shows what has happened in Manton Bay so far this season. Rutland Water is very lucky to be getting a newly refurbished Rutland Water Visitor Centre (formally the Tourist Information Centre) at Sykes Lane near Empingham and this video will be shown on their big screen. All the more reason to pop down and spend a day at Rutland Water!

    The chicks that have been hatched at Manton in the last 2 years, where are they ? do they return to Rutland ? Sorry to show my ignorance, but I’m learning all the time thanks to your website. Regards Ken Whiting

      Hello Ken, Ospreys do not usually return until they are two years old and when they come back for the first time it is generally later on in the season. We are expecting the 2010 chicks to come back for the first time this year and hopefully the 2011 chicks are still enjoying their time in West Africa until 2013.
