Thread subject: Update on the Welsh Ospreys
Name Date Message
Tiger 07/15/04 09:17 am Recently I reported that ospreys had nested in Wales for the first time ever.

There now has been an exciting update The male osprey is indeed one of the ones that was translocated to Rutland Water in 1998.

Now this is interesting as males are supposed to be loyal to their own site. This one moved west but stayed at roughly the same latitude.

No news on how he met the female.

Read about it at:

Marie 07/15/04 09:23 am Thank you again DR. TIGER... ;-)) It is great to always know what is going on in the world of Ospreys! How exciting to know of a translocated male moving to a new territory so far from home. Well I guess wales isn't a continent away, but as you said, far enough away to rethink the whole idea that males generally stay close to home.
Marie 07/15/04 10:11 pm )Nice interesting reading. Imagine a new pair of Ospreys in Wales. The male 11(98) hasn't been seen since it went on migration in Sept 98 , so where have it been for the past six years??? I could write a book on its travels and romances with other females...;-))
Tiger 07/16/04 04:09 am Yes Marie that is true. It gives hope for some of the other "missing" ospreys too.

I find it hard to believe that no one has seen him all this time.

Marie 07/17/04 12:55 am He's like ME...wants to fly free and keep away from CROWDS. He longs for the natural wilderness, far from the maddening crowd where there is much more likelyhood of breeding success. Where mountain lakes are crystal clear and fruitful and there is little 'BOTHER' from other ospreys or mankind. He may even like to see the sea off in the distance too. It was very unkind of Nature to treat this "newcomer" so unkind this year, his first that we know of. Hopefully he will not be deterred and will return next year.
