Ospreys return to nest at Rutland Water


The first pair of breeding ospreys has returned to Rutland Water after winter in Africa.

For 17 years the nature reserve has played host to a small community of the birds as part of a project to re-establish them in the UK.

From the moment they arrive until their chicks leave the nest in summer, the ospreys will be monitored by a team of 150 volunteers.

East Midlands Today weather presenter Sally Pepper visited the site as the first pair were reunited after spending the winter months apart.
