Number 14 remains at the southern end of the island of Bioko, Equatorial Guinea. The weather is apparently cloudy with temperatures around twenty six degrees, but with a hummidity rate of 81%. It is due to liven up a bit over the week end with thunderstorms forecast. For avid osprey watchers the wind direction in this part of Africa is not helpful for migration being WSW. In Senegal it is even less helpful with winds blowing from the north. But how many migrating ospreys are already on their way?
If you are interested in ospreys, birds, wildlife or just chatting to people why not become a volunteer with the LDOP. For more information just call Nathan, at Whinlatter, on 017687-78469.
We open for the season on Tuesday 1st April. Hopefully we will still be watching Number 14 along with any other ospreys that happen to visit Bassenthwaite.
