UV again!

Just over a week after photographing UV in his wintering grounds in N Senegal, Jean-Marie Dupart saw him again yesterday morning.

You can just see the antenna of UV’s GSM/GPS transmitter. Then UV took off and flew around the area, revealing the transmitter itself.

UV returned to his perch after a couple of minutes.

that’s enough exercise for a while!

As ever, we are very grateful to Jean-Marie for his photographs. He has just returned from a trip inland following the course of the Senegal River. Several posts about the interesting places he explored are on his website.

    Well, have just caught up on 3 months worth of Kielder Osprey news, and what a read!
    Joanna, you are indeed a prolific blogger, always quality and always something meaningful to say, and thankfully more good news than bad.
    I am overjoyed at the news of Aln checking in once again and look forward with not a little trepidation to her journey “home” to Kielder next year or even the year after. God willing she will have a smoother flight than her first migration, exciting though it was.
    Great sightings of UV in his winter habitat is the cherry on the cake. I think he and Jean-Marie must have a special connection and UV must be the most photographed bird on the planet!
    Great things to come for the new narural and man-made nests I feel. The eventual pairings will be so interesting, exciting and dynamic and may well teach everyone things even the experts did not know about Ospreys. Watch this space…..

    A very Happy Christmas to you all, soon the days will be longer and Spring wiil be upon us in a trice. Can’t wait!

      We hope you have a great Christmas too, and like you we’re looking forward to the next season.
