Update on the Hawkridge and Ashford Reservoir Osprey and More Pictures

October 10, 2012  •  2 Comments

Many thanks to Brian Gibbs for finding out the following data from Roy Dennis and posting it on the Somerset Ornithological Society messageboard.  His news reproduced below:

"I have received the details of the colour ringed juvenile Osprey ‘ND’ which was until recently at Hawkridge and Ashford Reservoirs. It was ringed by Roger Broad in Scotland (BTO:1421529), one of a brood of three on 10/07/12 near Loch Awe, Argyll. One of its two other siblings has also been found on its first journey south, but sadly got no further than Yorkshire where it was reported as a "rail casualty" on 02/09/12."
 

Here are a few more pictures from my last photographic session:

Many thanks for your comments. It was very nice to be able to find out more about this bird and I hope we will see it again on a return migration.

Thanks for the update. It's interesting to know where this bird originated and I wonder where it is now? More great photos - thank you.
