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
