Settled in Mauritania

25th February

Ozwold is settled in the same area of Mauritania as before, in the reserve of the Banc d'Arguin. He has been making regular flights in and around the area, presumably to and from good feeding and roosting areas.

It is likely that he will spend 2012 in Africa and return to more northern climes in the spring of 2013.

The adult ospreys will soon be returning to their summer breeding sites and we can expect them in our skies once again. There has already been a rumoured sighting of an osprey in Norfolk.

No Change

Ozwold is settled on the coast although he is ranging a large area of 115 square kms compared to the very small winter ranges of the adults. I wonder if this is because he is competing with established adult ospreys in the area for fishing sites.
