Migrant Osprey from Germany in Guinea Bissau released.

In January forest officers confiscated an Osprey with leg bands from Germany in a fishing village in Guinea-Bissau. The wildlife authorities then gave the Osprey to River Zoo Farm. The bird was in a worst condition and nearly dead.
After two months, on the 17th of March the bird was fit to be released for his long trip back to Germany. Okay, he was a little heavier then he should be (Me too). He was released by the Minister of Agriculture personally with much press and TV
publicity. After the release the bird first was sitting for about 15 Minutes on a small tree, he left and was never seen again. The Minister gives him good wishes for his long trip home.
