John is a key player in the amazing osprey reintroduction project at Rutland Water.
John contacted us in the autumn with photos and a video of 030 which featured on this blog here.
John's latest email says:
"030 is still present most days on Lagoon 4 at our Egleton Nature Reserve. I haven't seen any other Peregrines associating with her.
Her most recent kills have been Common and Black-headed Gulls, Lapwings, Wigeon, Mallard, Moorhens, Coot and Oystercatchers.

She's too young to think of nesting herself but clearly
enjoys the view from this mega nest.

A four year old male Osprey (51) spent much of last season on this nest platform but failed to attract a female. It will be very interesting to see what happens if/when he returns to his nest in the next few weeks and finds this squatter on the nest......very probably fireworks!"

Burley House looks close by but is a mile away on a hilltop!
