Some pics of UV at Poole
In reply to Gardenbirder:
Gardenbirder said:Great news about the sighting of UV--hurrah! Wonderful for Glaslyn (he is one of Mrs G's grandsons and is the son of White YA) and Poole Harbour as well as for Kielder. I remember hearing early on about his ring having been fitted upside down. He is listed on ukospreys as both UV and as VU and regardless of which ring number is used to refer to him, it is definitely him, though I suppose technically he is VU, but I presume he is known as UV since the U is the letter closest to his foot and rings are traditionally read up the leg, rather than down it. His siblings were two females, VT and VV--not sure if either have been seen since--anyone know?
VV also had a tracker, but contact was lost on her first migration as she was in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains. VT has never been reported since migrating.
Some maintenance work
