Our second young Osprey Blue YD is doing wonderfully well and has made it safely today to the south coast of Spain. Unfortunately we are having some issues with our website software this evening which is not allowing us to post the points on the interactive map- we hope to rectify this tomorrow morning. Meanwhile here is a description of his journey since Sunday:
On the 16th, Blue YD flew almost due south, and roosted for the night on the river Guardiana near the town of Merida.
On the 17th he flew across the Sierra Marena Mountains and spent the next night on a small river in agricultural lands west of Seville.
Today he has flown south and at noon today he was resting at Donana National Park, a Unesco World Heritage Site wetland and dune system. This is apparently a remarkable ecosystem and one of the most important wetlands in southern Europe-an ideal place for an Osprey sojourn. He is on the coast eats of the town of Huelva.
We hope to bring you more news of Blue 44 tomorrow too- stayed tuned!
