From Scotland to The Gambia to Wales – and from Wales to The Gambia

One of the Ospreys seen in 2018 and 2020 in The Gambia was Blue LJ2, originally ringed in Argyll, Scotland, earlier in that year. In January 2020, Blue LJ2 was one of three Ospreys mist-netted in the wetland area at Kartong. Later, in the summer of 2020, the same bird was seen at the Cors Dyfi nest in Wales on its first exploratory migratory journey northwards scouting out potential breeding sites. And now (24th November) Osprey KC2, hatched in North Wales earlier this year has been seen at Farasutu Community Forest, just south of the Gambia river!
