Port Lincoln Osprey, update

It is currently late afternoon in Port Lincoln, Australia. The osplets have been flapping their wings steady all day. At one point, I felt that one or more of them might take flight.

The original timing of the ringing, measuring, naming, and attaching at least one sat-pak to one of the trio was to be Monday 8 November. That timing has been brought forward. It will now take place in the morning Sunday 7 November Port Lincoln time.

It is unclear to me if you will be able to see the process or not. Please check your local time with that of Australia if you wish to check to see what is happening live. The link to the streaming cam is here:

On Monday, the Thistle Island chicks will be banded and one will get a sat-pak.

Oh, I can’t wait! Time to set the alarm.

Take care all. Thanks to Port Lincoln Osprey Project for their streaming cam where I took my screen shot.


    1. Yes, quickly. They are restless. I am making some wild assumption that the bander is flying in from Adelaide and they will try and get this done early early. Fingers crossed!

    Thanks Mary Ann for the update on the timing. I just checked and they are all asleep in the nest and mom is perched on the side. It is around 2:20 am there.
    I will keep checking too. I hope all goes well for them during this. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•
    I look forward to the next newsletter.
    Take care ! Linda
