Osprey chicks hatch at Rutland Water

Osprey chicks hatch

We are delighted to be able to announce today that a pair of Ospreys have been quietly incubating eggs at Rutland Water. After 40 days, during which time the nest was kept under constant surveillance, the adults' behaviour changed yesterday - indicating that hatching has occurred.

The full details will be published here later today:

Anglian Water and the Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust run the project.

We are now convinced that there are two healthy Osprey chicks in the nest at Rutland Water. The oldest chick probably hatched 15 days ago and has been seen for about a week. Now two heads are visible, and there could even be more.
