No Change!

18th March 2012

Well, Ozwold is still in the same area in Mauritania, which is great news as it means he is still safe and has obviously found good fishing sites.

It will be interesting to see if he stays in this area until next year when it is likely he will return north to find breeding sites.

Meanwhile, excitement is hotting up all over the UK at different osprey sites waiting for the return of the ospreys. It's amazing to think of these birds working their way up from Africa towards our shores. Some are almost here and some birds have already reached us;

Rutland ospreys...5R returned today! He has been seen catching a small pike.

Dyfi Montgomeryshire, they are ready with their newly installed HD live webcams to record the return of Monty and Nora. Neither Monty or Nora have satellite tags, so it really is a waiting game.

Beatrice is on her was back to Scotland....

Very settled

11th March

Ozwold seems very settled in Mauritania.

However, Beatrice, an osprey tagged by Roy Dennis in 2008, has just left her wintering site in southern Spain and is on her way back to her nesting site in Scotland. To see details of Beatrice's migration follow the link below;
