NO March 2018A report on the third year of the reintroduction of the Osprey in Switzerland (“Troisième année de réintroduction du Balbuzard pêcheur Pandion haliaetus en Suisse“) appeared in the March 2018 edition of the journal Nos Oiseaux. While only in French, it provides an illustrated overview of the work undertaken through the project and the results achieved in 2017. This included the surprise of temporarily having a “baker’s dozen”. Not only all 12 birds which were released all migrated, but we even hosted a young migrating female ringed in Germany. Obviously attracted by our birds, she made a 5 day stop-over before continuing on her way south.

heron-cover-dec2015“La réintroduction du Balbuzard en Suisse” by Erwan Zimmermann, one of our volunteers, appeared in the December 2015 edition of Le Héron. This publication by the “Groupe de Jeunes” of Nos Oiseaux is produced once a year. Although the article is in French it is well worth looking at since it is illustrated and provides a good account of two weeks in the life of a volunteer taking care of ospreys.
