RUTLAND OSPREY PROJECT - 2017

  • In reply to Vespa Crabro:

    Yes.   24(10) and 25(10) are the offspring of AA(06)/AW (he got a new ring when he was tagged) and the 'Scottish female'.  11(10) is Glesni's brother.  They are the offspring of 08(97) and 5N(05).

  • In reply to HilaryJ:

    Thanks, Hilary.  Those wonderful 03(97) genes again--lovely that Glesni (and her brother, presumably) have had offspring.

    Kind regards,

    Sheila, they are connected in that they are under the same ownership.

    This article perhaps explains the set up as well as any.

  • In reply to Mike:

    8 (97) was held up to be a disaster in the love stakes until   3 (97) with help from 05 (00) made him a wife. However by the time he disappeared in suspicious circumstances in 2011 he still had no known offspring return. Then  one of his chicks from 2009   (Blue 03)  and both chicks from his 2010 nest viz Blue 11 and Blue 12  returned. 

    Thus  he did ok in the end

    The story   of  08 (97) 

    His wee sister    01 (99)  was translocated to Rutland but she decided to go back to Scotland where she paired up with a disabled osprey  Orange ZT and they bred for a number of years. 

    There was a great saga at Blagdon lake in 2013  and one of the birds there was ochre  ZT  and for a short while it was thought that an osprey had come back from the dead. It was pointed out that  ochre is not orange and in any case the bird wearing the ring was female.

    Mike, what a fantastic article!   It really gives a feel of the layout and contains some brilliant photos too,  especially Mr Rutland 03(97)!
