The very observant osprey webcam watchers may have noticed that juvenile LN1 hasn’t been seen very much recently. We therefore believe it is very possible he has started his migration, leaving us with PT0 and LM12.
We are still going through footage to check the last time he was seen (there is a lot to go through!), but at the moment we know that he was here on the 10th of August, and could be seen with PT0 on the nest.
Juvenile ospreys typically leave for migration 12-14 weeks after hatching. The chicks are around 12 weeks old now, so, although we weren’t expecting him to go quite so soon, it’s not concerning.
It would be great to know if anyone has seen LN1 on the webcam since the 10th of August, so we can try and work out when he left.
It is difficult to know when PT0 and LM12 will leave now, so if you were planning to visit to see the ospreys, this week would be the best time to do so to avoid disappointment.
Thanks for reading and we will keep you updated,
