English Ospreys & Red kites

A returned male and an unringed female Osprey succeeded in hatching a chick last week at Rutland Water… …and some news from the Red Kite reintroduction scheme in the English midlands. Hopefully there will be two ways of seeing a Red Kite nest with young from this week, one in Northamptonshire and the other, eventually, on the web - there is still a problem with getting the webcam going. This is a joint venture between the RSPB, English Nature and the Forestry Commission.

English Ospreys!
11th June 2001 - A returned male and an unringed female Osprey succeeded in hatching a chick last week at Rutland Water. See the web site for more details: http://www.ospreys.org.uk/AWOP/Update.htm …and Red Kites!
11th June 2001 - Some news from the Red Kite reintroduction scheme in the English midlands. There will, one day, be two ways of seeing a Red Kite nest with young, one in Northamptonshire and the other, eventually, on the web. This is a joint venture between the RSPB, English Nature and the Forestry Commission.The Top Lodge centre is now open 10:00 to 18:00 all week - with TV monitors, highlights tape, leaflets, displays etc. There will be RSPB staff/volunteers present on Wednesday to Sunday each week. This all takes place in a barn at the Forestry Commission offices at Top Lodge, Fineshade Woods, just off the A43, 3 miles south of the A47 roundabout at Duddington, Northamptonshire, England. Webcam The web cam feature was due to be up and running on the English Nature web site on the 8th June - I gather there are now problems so watch this space… http://www.english-nature.org.ukAccess - The barn is a short distance from the car park and the path is level and leads straight into the barn, so no access problems for wheelchair users. There’'s even a porta-kabin toilet with a ramp!
