Ospreys 2019

Post by bigyetiman » Thu Mar 14, 2019 2:42 pm

For all you Osprey fans out there. Maya the Rutland female battled through 50mph winds onto the nest at 10.39 am. Scared the living daylights out of the 2 Egyptian Geese on it.
Guess a few more aren't far behind. Osprey 30 with the tracker left Senegal on Monday.

Hooray, she she hasn't changed and quickly beat up the loitering crows :-)08 :-)08
The Loch of the Lowes female (Lassie) has returned also, hope she is impressed with Laddies, pine furnishings on the nest.
Come on Aran

Telyn the Dyfi female arrived last night at 7 28. The Llyn Brenig female arrived back on Thursday.
We have been watching on Google earth the satellite tracked Osprey from Rutland 30 and worked out some stats from the info she 3 days to cross the Western Sahara with total of 19 hours flying. Then 2 days crossing the Atlas Mountains with a total of 23 hours flying. Then one day she flew 16 hours non stop across Spain. Her average days flying is 12-13 hours. The data comes in every 3 days and a couple of days ago she was just west of Paris..
Interestingly another satellite tracked bird only left Senegal a few days ago, and another one has just got to Morocco.
With the Google earth it is amazing to actually see the terrain they are crossing, where they stop to roost and how inhospitable some of these places are, for all species on migration
