Migration time for Tweed Valley ospreys

“Migration for ospreys has started now and birds from further up north will be passing through the area on their southward journey to spend winter in Africa, in areas such as Senegal and the Gambia. Here, they will live a colonial existence, fishing in the swamps and languishing in the good weather, to avoid the harsher winters of Scotland.
We had thought that the female osprey from the Tweed Valley main nest had departed already but she made a very brief appearance at the nest on Sunday 19th.” To read what the birds have been up to go to the Tweed Valley Osprey Blog

    Actually saw the Boat o’ Garten ospreys in the Gambia– quite emotional to see them in January in their winter home.
