Whatever floats your boat…

As many of you will know, at Rutland water Osprey project, we want to immerse you in the world of the Osprey, show you up close how they live, feed, breed and fledge. What better way to complete the picture of Osprey life than by getting out onto the water itself? We are running cruises all through the summer, a mixture of dawn and afternoon cruises out onto Rutland water, 90 minutes of fantastic views of the birdlife on the water and in the air.. with (hopefully!) some views of flying/fishing Ospreys!

The cruise will be guided by myself and Katy Smart, offering a narrative of Osprey life, some fun facts and insights, as well as bad jokes! It’s great fun and a brilliant opportunity to see Rutland water as never before. We still have a lot of spaces left on our first cruise of the season, on the 25th May at 5.30pm until 7PM, lead by our Senior reserves officer Rebecca Pitman, so call us or book online to come and enjoy a cruise on the water!

For more info on the cruises, you can call us or find out more on the main webpage here: https://www.ospreys.org.uk/cruises/

Looking forward to seeing you all there! The first of the season is always exciting as hopefully all of our chicks will be hatching, and the parents will have their work cut out trying to feed those hungry mouths!
