Will he Stay?
Einion has been in his current position for 10 days now - he seems to like it in Morocco. Question is, will he stay there for good or carry on to more conventional wintering countries when he's ready?
Not all British ospreys go all the way to Senegal, Gambia and neighbouring countries. Beatrice for example, a 11 year old female that Roy Dennis tagged in 2008, stays put near the Guadiaro River (where Dulas is now) near Gibraltar in southern Spain each winter. Another one of his ospreys winters even further north near Madrid.
Einion is only around half way to more conventional wintering grounds - would it make good sense for him to stay where he is with less predation pressures and competition for territories? Time will tell.
