Welsh Osprey ringing 2018

Apologies for lack of postings recently, the fine weather has meant there has been very little downtime so far this year!!

Below is a link to 3 videos of the ringing of three of the five known Welsh Osprey nests this year. One additional nest is known to have failed and the remains one will hopefully be ringed by other ringers soon, giving, as far as we are aware, complete coverage of all Osprey chicks reared in Wales in 2018.

And, just for fun, there is a link to the Dyfi Osprey Project chick naming ceremony!
