Well our wheels have started turning for 2015 we left home for Peterborough Show last week had a great 4 days there with Fun, good show where we decided to change our TV after the Oyster dish started playing silly beggars again and not locking on, after talking to Eddie Van Blitz, Jacksons and others who were completely honest with us and told us it would cost £750 to update so we considered if we wanted to go down the route of spending over £1000 on a new saltalite system and a new TV As ours has seen much better days but decided against it.

We ended up after picking various funsters brains buying a Avtex TV and aerial which we are really pleased with we got them from Road Pro and they were very patient and helpful with all our questions. So now we have a new TV works brilliantly but we have only had it on twice.

We left Peterborough for Rutland Water, Lyndon Top, it is stunning we have had a lovely walk ny the lake and chilled out watching the yachts and horses all we can hear is bird song we may linger here a little longer.

Type in rutland water ospreys on your laptop/tablet & you can watch the ospreys via a live webcam, on their nest incubating their eggs, & according to the excellent daily news updates the 1st egg will hatch around 25th - 30th May.It is an excellent website with a team of excellent staff & volunteers. We went last year & are planning a return visit soon, but we are addicted to following the ospreys.Have even bought the book. Also for those in Wales the Dyfi osprey project is excellent & they too have live webcam with sound. When on our travels we also visited the Dyfi wildlife trust last year, another friendly & welcoming team.Bought their book too. Enjoy your armchair bird watching!!!

Thank you for that I will have a look.

Hi Captain Biggles, Just put a post on the Cuckoo thread but worth putting here.
We are enchanted by the number of birds in the lane by Lyndon Top we have seen Finches of every colour, stood watching a yellow hammer, it was so bright it could have been a budgie, the Robins are all around the site and of course the resident Owl can be heard in the evening.
Though my high lite was sitting in the van in field 9 overlooking the lake and suddenly there was the Osprey right in front of me being harried by a crow they were there for a good few minutes before the Osprey dived into the lake then I lost sight of him.
We spent a pleasant half hour in the Nature Reserve shop afterwards watching the Osprey on the nest with all the small birds flitting around the feeders.

Hi Carol & Eddie,

We're thinking of visiting Rutland later this week, maybe staying over the bank hols. Is Oakham near enough to cycle or walk into? The golf club and driving range looks near too, is it?

Hi @Allan & Loren , Oakem is a pleasant cycle ride not to far, the golf club is adjacent to Lynton Top, Auther the site Warden is great and will give you any help, not sure if you will get on field 9 with your RV. I would have a walk down and look before you decide where to Park, there are 7 rallies there over the bank holiday iff you are in the CCC their rally looks good. We are leaving on Tuesday for Apps Court Farm via St Neots.

Well worth going.

Photos on my phone went mad sorry, we have just had a couple of days at St Neots CCC really nice site good pitch on the river, last night while we were sitting in the van heard a drum beat coming from the river, then going past a long Viking canoe going past with a man besting time on a large drum, very strange, nice walk along the river bank to a nice pub and a large weir. Also had the best Fish & Chips from the chippy in the main high St they were seriously good.
Tomorrow we move on to London.
(For some reason when I post from my phone it underlines everything and I can't get out of it) so please excuse if this happens.
