American Wigeon at Rutland

A couple of year ticks today in the form of the American Wigeon and an Osprey at Rutland Water.
The Wigeon took a little time to find but the Osprey was easy as you'd expect at Rutland. The reserve has twenty one Osprey this year with a slight imbalance of male to female. I'm told eight pairs have been formed leaving five birds still looking for love which could bring its own problems as the loners could start to visit bonded nests with a view to finding a partner.
