Finnish-ringed Osprey in Kenya

Taken into care having become entangled in fishing nets. Looks like it will be ok! 7000 km from ringing site. Great to see ringing finds in international press.

Hi guys.
Just saw this thread. Bad news, unfortunately. The Osprey died almost as soon as it was found. According to the authorities, the postmortem found the bird died due to systematic organ failure as a result of long-term starvation. :(
