Ospreys are a Amber list species-medium conservation concern.

Ospreys usually nest in trees but will use cliffs, but also as seen here man made platforms on Rutland water. They need a regular supply of fish which they catch duringg spectaular, feet-first dives into lakes,rivers or the sea. The nest is a large structure of sticks which is re-used year after year.
