Maremma Regional Park, Italy, June 07

For the last two summers, myself and a colleague have been invited to Italy to help assist with an Osprey translocation project. Osprey chicks have been brought over from the nearby island of Corsica and released within Maremma RP. The Corsican birds nest on sea cliffs so it will be interesting to see if they are able to adapt to the low lying marshes and coastal Pine forests around Maremma RP. Two of last years released Ospreys have already spent their first winter and summer nearby.
