More please..

An interesting situation. Is the bird trapped? It seems unlikely that it would fly into a caged-off area.
Is Blagdon Lake a sanctuary for injured birds perhaps?
Thanks
Derek

The Osprey is a male(ringed

The Osprey is a male(ringed in Scotland in 2007)and is on passage at the lake. Unfortunately it keeps getting trapped under the netting of a fish hatchery and has to be released every day! Hopefully it will continue its journey north before too long and learn not to be attracted to any more fish hatcheries with nets over them!

Regards

Des

Trapped but not stuck

Oh, that's nice information. Is it known where he'll go/return? - Thanks Des.
