The latest data from AW’s radio proves that he has reached his winter home. Having roosted in the mangroves 500m from the shoreline on Friday evening, the GPS position at 8am showed him fishing just over 3km out to sea. An hour later he was back in the mangroves, presumably eating the fish.
Like most adult Ospreys at their established wintering site, AW will probably spend the winter in a very small area – using the same perches each day. It will be really interesting to follow his daily routine over the coming months.
