Osprey chicks ringed and now live online!

The two Osprey chicks have now been ringed by our colleagues at the Forestry Commission for Scotland. We have a male blue PW9 and female blue PW0 in the nest. They have also been fitted with satellite trackers, so we will be able to follow them throughout their migration and find out exactly where they go in the winter!

In this photo you can see the small ‘backpack’ trackers, which they hardly notice, but will give us vital information about the migration of these birds.

You can now view our Osprey Nest Camera live on our website! Go to http://www.wwt.org.uk/wetland-centres/caerlaverock/experience/webcam/

The webcam is on between 10am and 5pm daily.

Once the chicks have left the nest we will have a regular blog charting their progress on their first migration!
