Dr Tim Mackrill
Founder - The Osprey Leadership FoundationTim managed the Rutland Osprey Project for more than ten years, having first got involved as a volunteer when he was 15 years old. It was those early experiences at Rutland Water that have shaped his career and inspired him to set-up the Osprey Leadership Foundation. He now works as a freelance nature conservationist, including with the Roy Dennis Wildlife Foundation on various species recovery projects, including the second English Osprey translocation at Poole Harbour in Dorset and the Isle of Wight White Tailed Eagle reintroduction. He recently completed a PhD on Osprey migration. Tim is author of The Rutland Water Ospreys that was published by Bloomsbury in 2013 and RSBP Spotlight Ospreys which was published in May 2019. Tim has travelled widely in West Africa to study Ospreys
