In reply to SheilaFE:
SheilaFE said:Geemeff, I fully I tended joining this zoom presentation, but when the time came, I forgot. However I think you or another person involved suggested it might be available to watch not long after. I haven't seen anything more or any obvious route to a link. Are you able to point me in the right direction? I am really interested in following the project, and to see which osprey are involved involved.
Hi Sheila,you can send an empty email with the subject 'add to mailing list' to firstname.lastname@example.orgAt the moment it looks like there will be four tagged Ospreys: Rutland's Blue 4k, and three yet to be tagged, probably from Tweed Valley. But things are changing all the time, so I'll be as interested as you to see what transpires.I'm still working my way through emails, tweets and whatsapps after the launch of Thursday night, ithere may be a link to Monday's briefing in one of them. I'll return and post here when I get one.Hope that helps.
Geemeff, Many thanks for the notice about the short Zoom meeting about the Flight of the Osprey. Mr GB and I watched it and I was glad to hear Sacha will not be flying as she did with the Swans and so we will not need to worry about the project on that account (don't want any more tragedies). I was amused and delighted to hear Sacha's description of how the idea of the project was first broached--it was while she was 'being flung around the dance floor by Roy Dennis' that he had asked her if she could do the same for Ospreys as she had done for Swans! Wonderful--I can just picture it! Also, I do hope that one or more of the folks involved in the project will be doing talks for various groups over the two years of the project, among others possibly to Local RSPB Groups as well as to other larger and smaller groups. Our Local RSPB Groups usually have events planned for a year ahead, but they would probably be happy to have a talk in year two of the FOTO project. Our local Wildlife Trust also offers occasional talks, and there is a small team at a Bird of Prey centre near us who do a regular Podcast, interviewing a wide range of folks involved in nature and its conservation (not only those involved with birds of prey but all of nature)--just a few suggestions.
Thank you, Gardenbirder, I've just realised I didn't answer this bit. I've passed on your comments to the outreach team and left it with them. I'm sure outreach events will start being scheduled as August approaches. Now the project has been launched officially, and sponsors are coming on board, the details are being firmed up with plans being made, tweaked or discarded, and more plans being made. Anyone want to donate a couple of Land Rovers for the expedition team members who'll be driving the route?
Edit The mental picture of Sacha and Roy Dennis twirling around discussing Ospreys on the dance floor is a delicious one... I imagine those Jane Austen type dances where they meet up long enough to exchange a couple of words then step away again only to meet up and twirl before repeating the sequence.
Morning all, here's the link for the introductory briefing for the Flight of The Osprey (#FOTO) that was held last week, thank you to all who attended. And if anyone would still like to record their responses to two questions about your relationship with Ospreys, the link is below. Please don't leave comments here, leave them on the YouTube clips in the comments section, or email email@example.com. You can use the same email address to sign up for newsletters and updates, send a blank email with 'add to mailing list' in the subject field. Many thanks.
http://ukospreys.uk/ Anyone know how to contact them? Two Darvic records to be changed T7 Rutland 2016 is male not female (informed by River Gwash Ospreys, he's been photographed fishing there many times) JJ2 Loch Arkaig 2019 is male not female (per photo of Feb 2022 sighting)
I still suspect JJ0 (Loch Arkaig 2019) is also male - wouldn't it be great to get a sighting of her / him too?!
Some people think Ospreys are a matter of life and death. I don't like that attitude. I can assure them it is much more serious than that.
Link to my Flight of the Osprey (#FOTO) blog post for Conservation Without Borders about the responses to two questions about our relationship with Ospreys: www.conservation-without-borders.org/welcome-to-the-flight-of-the-osprey-blog-post Many thanks to everyone who responded!
