WOW – Day 5! Reaching Out From Rutland

Just after osprey 30 arrived back in Rutland following her 3500 mile migration something else was in the air in Rutland! On his Rutland Radio morning show, Rob Persani broadcast a report about yesterday’s international skype. This featured the English Martyrs School Osprey Ambassadors, Rachel, Finn, and Georgia and our skype link with schools in Italy, Spain and The Gambia!

Rachel, Finn, and Georgia were in action again with the Education Team for a full school assembly at English Martyrs School this morning when they gave their fellow pupils the latest news about the Rutland Ospreys.
