These are images taken over the previous two years whilst out on trips on my own or with Richard. Some are whilst on Osprey duty at Rutland Water, others just owling sessions.
Female Adult Osprey, Manton Bay July 2013.
Called Maya in 2014.
Little Owl Site No 3.
Last bird seen here on Boxing day 2013.
This image taken when virtually dark so hence the quality?
We still monitor the site awaiting hopefully another pair to take up the nest hole.
Little Owl Site No 9.
Taken on Boxing day 2013.
Little Owl Site No. 10.
These birds have been difficult to track down as through the Winter they frequented two sites and we were not sure as to whether we had two pairs or one travelling. It turned out to be the latter.
Kestrel near to Little Owl Site No. 6.
Juvenile Green Woodpecker, our garden.

Muntjac Deer Rutland Water, to the front of Waderscrape Hide. You wouldn't see them today due to the height of the reeds at the moment.
