Anne-UK1 07/30/12 04:52 pm Young Ceulan has had a visitor - I'm not quite sure what he made of it :) Nice video included in the blog of the two together on the nest, plus excellent news about the apparent expansion of the osprey population in Wales. They just need more platforms! I guess there's some building work being planned for the winter. Link
Celeste 07/31/12 05:46 am Great blog Anne. What a nice turn of events too. Not enough real estate but enough osprey! Do hope they will get those platforms up before the next season!
Pam 07/31/12 06:22 am It's getting difficult to keep track of all the UK Ospreys now (not that I try very hard). All I know is we were in Wales for a week last week. Travelling by car it took about 5 hours to do under 300 miles - I wonder how long it took Blue 12 to fly there from Rutland Water, which is only a 40 minute drive from us. Apparently she flew to Wales one day and was back at RW the next since when she has gone back to Wales again !! Ospreys don't get stuck in traffic jams !!
Anne-UK1 07/31/12 09:05 am I'm sure they will get more platforms up before next spring Celeste. They are very enthusiastic over there, from what I can gather. I'm amazed to read they've seen 50 ospreys flying around this summer - I'm just hoping that means it won't be too many more years before one or two decide to settle in my part of the world or not too far away.

An interesting question Pam. According to google earth it's about 150 miles from Rutland to Dyfi as the osprey flies. I think it's quite possible Blue 12's journey time matched yours pretty closely, though I suspect her journey was far more enjoyable and relaxing :)
