Tweed Valley osprey chicks ringed

2 July 2013

A group of schoolchildren were invited to watch three osprey chicks being ringed at a secret location in the Tweed Valley yesterday. There are now ten active osprey nests in the region, all monitored by Forestry Commission Conservation Manager and Raptor Study Group member Tony Lightley and his colleagues. Approximately 160 osprey chicks have been ringed since the Tweed Valley Osprey Project began in 1999.
