Osprey are a bit of an obsession for me. They are an exceptionally rare bird here in the UK and I am extremely lucky to live fairly close to one of our prime breeding locations in Rutland. I quite literally count the days and harass the Osprey team at Rutland when the birds are due to arrive and try to get over as soon as I can after we have a few birds back in the country!.
They are astonishing creatures, the journey they make each and every year from the UK to Africa is simply mind boggling. It is a true privilege to watch these birds thriving over at Rutland.
Here are a few of my pictures of the Rutland Osprey, all of which were taken courtesy of Gwash Ospreys
