Border Ospreys To Be Ringed
RSPB Scotland has celebrated the “success story” of osprey chicks in the Borders region of Scotland. In the past decade more than 100 ospreys have fledged in the environs of the River Tweed which separates Scotland from England. Now, new osprey chicks in the area will be “ringed” so that their progress and whereabouts may be tracked. The ringing is part of an initiative run by Forestry Commission Scotland, RSPB Scotland and Kailzie Gardens. There are now nine active osprey nests within the Tweed Valley. The public can watch some of them at Glentress Forest and Kailzie Gardens via CCTV cameras.
