Today Tim Mackrill from the Rutland Water Project alerted us to a sighting by Frederic Bacuez of a Kielder osprey from Nest 2 in 2012, out in Senegal. This is really fantastic news, the first ever Kielder bird seen at a migration destination, so huge thanks to Tim and Frederic.
The young osprey seen by Frederic on 14 November is Darvic ring Blue 1H, offspring of Yellow 37 and his unringed mate. Here are a couple of photos from the ringing at that nest.
Blue 1H was seen in the Todde area of Northern Senegal, described by Frederic as a ‘hotspot’ – he saw 72 different species including a Denham’s bustard, very rare, and four ospreys. Here is a photo of Blue 1H taken by Frederic.
