About this event

The project, which started in 2017, involves the translocation of 60 juvenile Ospreys from Scottish nests into the Poole Harbour area. This process aims to create a bond between the young Ospreys and their new local area, before they leave on their first treacherous migration, usually to West Africa. The bond draws the Ospreys back to Poole Harbour on their return to the UK, after at least 2 years maturing in their wintering grounds, when they will identifying suitable nesting sites. The translocation therefore lays the foundations for their return as a breeding bird to the South Coast, 180 years on from their local extinction.

2021 turned out to be an exciting year for the project - find out more and what the future holds in 2022.

A suggested minimum donation of £3 per person watching would be appreciated. All profits help Avon Wildlife Trust with their work locally.

The talk will be recorded and the recording made available to participants afterwards.
