A couple of year ticks today in the form of the American Wigeon and an Osprey at Rutland Water. The Wigeon took a little work finding it but the Osprey was easy.

Rutland has twenty one Osprey this year with a slight in balance of male to female. I’m told eight pairs have been formed leaving five birds still looking for love which could bring its own problems as the loners could start to visit bonded nests with a view to finding a partner.
