Osprey Tracking Update – 25th November 2015

After FR3 and FR4’s recent adventures, the last week or so has been fairly uneventful, with both birds settled in their respective areas of the Gambia.

FR3 continues to make daily journeys between the two bolongs (creeks) near Sutu Sinjang and Bulok.

Meanwhile, FR4 has been exploring more of the Baobolon Wetlands. The majority of the activity took place between 15th and 21st, while the last few days have been more sedentary (see the central cluster of points for 22nd-24th).

With a month to go till Christmas our two young ospreys are currently 72km (45 miles) apart. Might they have a family reunion?

Keep checking the tracking page for the latest news!
