Bird Hide Update at Rutland Water

Last year a portion of the kind donations that we had received from CJ Wildlife customers for The Wildlife Trust supported the update of the Osprey Hide at Rutland Water.

We are always happy to support projects like this so that customers can see what their highly valued donations go towards giving something back to people that enjoy wildlife as much as we do. The hide was in desperate need of a complete refurbish and we saw this as the perfect opportunity to help Rutland and Leicestershire Wildlife Trust.

Simon Bentley Director of the Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust said “We are delighted with the rebuilding of Osprey Hide at Rutland Water Nature Reserve, thanks to kind donations from customers of CJ Wildlife and Subbuteo Natural History Books. The hide overlooks lagoon 2 and offers a greatly improved facility for visitors to view and appreciate the fabulous birds and host of other wildlife at Rutland Water Nature Reserve, an internationally important wetland site.”
