When out in the Northumberland hills yesterday, David Dinsley saw and photographed his first osprey of the season. It was Kielder Nest 4 Blue 227, named Belling.
Here’s a photo from ringing.
He was one of 2 male chicks for 69 and Mrs 69. This is the first return that has been reported of any of their chicks, so a milestone for them.
Many thanks to David for allowing us to share his photo. Lovely to see 227/Belling again!
