Ilmar landing with prey …
And the nest is empty. On Saturday the shrill calls of the young ospreys could still be heard, on Sunday both a great tit and a jay came to investigate the nest.
As first to depart, the female started her migration already a month ago; ospreys have this tradition. Our ospreys equipped with transmitters mostly winter in the western part of Africa – Angola, Gabon, Kongo, Sudan, Ethiopia. They are very good fliers: for the 6 000 kilometre migration they use less than a month. Without fear they also cross great water bodies.
Wind in your wings, friends and a happy discovery of lands!
Many thanks to the Eagle Club, all osprey friends on the forum and of course the many viewers.
