Highland osprey in ‘fastest’ migration

6 September 2012

A young osprey raised in the Highlands has made what is believed to be the fastest migratory flight from Scotland to West Africa. The osprey, called ‘Alba’, flew 3,000 miles from the RSPB’s Loch Garten Reserve near Aviemore to West Africa in two weeks. This journey usually takes several months to complete. BBC news:
