Borders Chick from 2007 returns!

We are delighted to hear that the osprey spotted(white leg ring HC) checking out the main nest by sharp eyed volunteer, Iain Mckay while on duty, is a bird which came from our back up nest in 2007. He is now a mature bird checking out territory near to where he was raised in the beautiful Borders landscape which is so familiar to him.
More nesting platforms will be going up in our region to accommodate returning youngsters as they reach maturity and look for territories of their own.
It is great to hear news of any of the ospreys raised in the Borders and is testament to the great success of the Tweed Valley Osprey Project and the Team working in partnership which ensures that the project continues to thrive.

  1. I was at the ringing in 2007 but never thought to check the photos I took then!! HA and HB were from the televised main nest and HC, HD and HE were at the back up nest. I have the photos to prove it!
