Sad news about Joe

Sadly, there has been evidence that Joe, one of the juvenile ospreys Roy tagged this year has died. Joe's transmitter stopped sending signals in mid October, but began transmitting again in November from one site only.

Frederic Bacuez, a French ornithologist working in Senegal has found the satellite transmitter and the remains of Joe.

To see the full account, follow the link to Roy Dennis's website at the Highland Foundation for Wildlife;

It is a harsh reminder of the survival challenges facing young ospreys.

I hope Ozwold stays safe. I'll update his progress when more news comes in.
