A great start to the New Year!

Jean-Marie Dupart was out photographing ospreys this morning, and he found UV enjoying brunch on the same Baobab as on 22 December, when Jean-Marie photographed him flying away. Here is a lovely sequence of Jean-Marie’s photos of a well-fed looking UV!

Many thanks to Jean-Marie for sharing his special photos with us.

The data from UV’s GSM/GPS tracker shows that recently, UV hasn’t used that tree as much as several other inland perches. A very good start to the New Year for Jean-Marie to find him there, and in ‘pose’ mode!

      Good point, Sandra :-)
      These winter updates certainly warm the cockles of the heart and give much hope for the Spring and Summer to come.
      Thank you to all at Kielder and your friends abroad

    Such good news Jaydee. Happy New Year indeed.

  7. Love these shots of the Ospreys on their winter holiday! They make lots of the followers of the US nests envious since it seems harder to get shots of “their” migrated birds in the Amazon.

      Jean-Marie lives very near UV’s area, and is often out with his camera for work or pleasure, so we are lucky in that respect. It still isn’t easy to photograph a specific bird, even one with a GSM/GPS transmitter!

    The lad looks well, enjoying his holidays. Happy New Year everyone, and thanks for the update.
