Oh Pam I must think of going up there!

||Now this is the most exciting news in a long time. I really had the feeling that this was needed. A sort of osprey dating club.

||Always a great place to lose oneself after a busy day at work!
OSPREY EATS CROW..mmmmm ?

||Oh I have thought so much about this and it always seemed to me that there were too few birds. Who knows some of those ageing Rutland batchelors may find young mates.

||Apparently there will be six young females released and they have permission for up to ten - hope I'm correct - I tend to skimread. They will be free to fly over Rutland Water and hopefully come to think of it as "home" and return to find a mate and nest there eventually in which case we may have a better chance of seeing ospreys through our binoculars - there has been a lot of secrecy (understandably) about the present nest and not a chance of the lay public being able to view it. However, it seems to have paid off so far with the chicks reportedly doing very well.

||Thanks Tiger for the update ... now those old bachelors just have to wait a few years for those girls to return. Are all the Rutland birds banded? Then they would know when/if they return.

||Yes all the Ruland birds are banded well except thos that choose to come to Rutland by themselves. There is one unringed female about.
I know what you mean by waiting for the girls to mature.
