An orange ringed male that gave us tantalising views on the river Allahein just south of Kartong on the 13th January was fishing in exactly the same spot a week later and this time we were determined to get the ring. He eventually gave up fishing in the river and flew out to sea, leaving us a bit gutted. However, while we watched a female fishing in the same area, the male returned without a fish and began fishing again. He eventually caught a fish and flew towards the boat, close enough to take a picture and to zoom up on the ring. The ring had the 'male sign' and we suspected (correctly) that it was one of Rolf Wahl's Ospreys from central France. A full life history of the 'male' can be found here on Rolf's website http://rowahl-pan-hal.pagesperso-orange.fr/Baguageetsuivianglais-2011.htm We recently heard that the male had already returned to his nest in early March!!!. What a bird.
