Alison - I've seen a few references to Beaky. I think she is a 'she', and assume she is unringed. Is she new this year, or was she 'mingling' last year too?

patily said:Only just managed to listen to the fist podcast and thought it really interesting and enjoyable I had never heard that syatistic before that for evey year that birds don't breed after they have reached the appropriate there is a 10% incease risk of them being lost on migration!
I think that is slightly misleading. Any adult bird has a 10% chance of failing to return. In other words they are saying ospreys have a finite number of chances to breed.
