Children spent last week learning about a bird that has become synonymous with Rutland.

Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust hosted World Osprey Week for primary and secondary school children, just as the famous birds returned to the county from West Africa as part of their spring migration.

Ken Davies, Jackie Murray and Pete Murray, from the trust’s osprey education team, which this year celebrates its 60th anniversary, ran assemblies and education workshops across the county, with a total of more than 550 pupils. Pupils from Wittering Primary, Catmose College in Oakham, Great Casterton Primary School, English Martyrs and Leighfield Primary in Uppingham, all took part.
