  • In reply to ALAN PETRIE:

    Male 2007, ringing location unknown (White with black letters AA)

    Cracking photos!

    Thanks to UK Ospreys website

  • Photographed at Lossiemouth which seems to be pretty far north in Scotland. If it is a male and has followed the textbooks, it is nesting near to where it hatched, possibly, but then they do not all read the textbooks... else why would there be a Scottish-hatched bird wanting to nest now at Llyn Brenig in Wales, for example? I wonder if Roy Dennis can release where Osprey AA hatched.

    Kind regards,
