Osprey sightings 2012

  • First osprey sighting of 2012 in Faune - Aquitaine, Landes department:

    Sunday, January 1st, 2012
    A64 km44 / Saint-Cricq-du-Gave (40)
    1
    Osprey (Pandion haliaetus) [Sébastien Pierre ]

    Comment : L'individu est
    posé sur un arbre en contre bas de l'autoroute. Vu déjà dans le même secteur un
    individu en vol hier.

  • SUE C - May I politely ask a question. Was reviewing my records at nests. Does Orange HD at Crook of Baldoon count in your spreadsheet. I know the Darvik Ring was lost in Winter 2008/09 but the site identify the resident as Orange HD.

    Maybe I am missing seeing this in your spreadsheet or it does not count - You can call me stupid if I am missing it.

    As I have said before your spreadsheet is a Herculean effort and thank you very much for the information - and without it half of my own records would be missing.

    To be honest Keith, I'd come across the info but didn't know what to make of it, as the Wigtown Ospreys site and the Crook of Baldoon blog on this site both show the ring as H/D and I'd never come across a "3-character" darvic ring before. Will add her as Orange HD. 

  • Faune Aquitaine, Landes department:

    Friday, January 6th, 2012

    A64 km44 / Saint-Cricq-du-Gave (40)

    1  Osprey (Pandion haliaetus)        [Sébastien Pierre  ]  

    Comment : Toujours posé sur le même arbre

    Faune Aquitaine, Pyrenees Atlantique department:

    Friday, January 6th, 2012

    Bras mort du Gave: Saligue de Glères / Bésingrand (64)

    1  Osprey (Pandion haliaetus)        [Chantal Mazen  ]

  • Faune  Charente - Maritime:

    vendredi 6 janvier 2012

    Etang de la Palue / Saintes (17)

    1  Balbuzard pêcheur (Pandion haliaetus)        [Marc Dubois  ]

  • Sue C - Thank you very much and I too was a little confused for the same reasons. In the end I put it down to just the way they were expressing the ring - H/D. I have never known of a Darvic Ring stamped like this.

    I will also keep her as Orange HD and Thank You for clarifying this.

  • Osprey at El Hondo yesterday.

  • Faune Aquitaine site,Pyrenees Atlantique department:

    Sunday, January 8th, 2012

    Bras mort du Gave: Saligue de Glères / Bésingrand (64)

    1  Osprey (Pandion haliaetus)        [Chantal Mazen  ]  

    Comment : Toujours posé dans le même groupe d'arbres.

    Tauziet / Momas (64)

    1  Osprey (Pandion haliaetus)        [Jenny Bostock  ]

    Comment : 1305h en vol vers l'est avec sa proie dans ses serres

  • I am not sure who has access to them but Pip Rowe posted some pictures of ospreys, on Facebook,  which she took on her trip to Senegal. It looked as if two were German birds but one was Scottish.

    For a short time yesterday I thought it might be a return from the "dead" osprey. It turned out to be a young Scottish bird and I think it was this one

    It was blue UB   and apparently hails from Perthshire.

     

  • Thanks Tiger. I have had a look at the pics that Pip put on Facebook and blue UB looks like a female but the pic on John Wrights blog appears to be a male.

  • Alan  That was what I was thinking too. It will be interesting to see how this is resolved (if it is!)

  • Ditto Alan and Tiger!
