The extraordinary revival in Osprey numbers that we are witnessing here in southern New England has not been restricted to our shores. Nearly eliminated from most of Europe half a century ago, Ospreys are staging a remarkable comeback there as well — from Scotland to Spain and France to Finland. Follow local Osprey expert Alan Poole as he leads guests along on a three week summer trip through Europe, visiting Osprey researchers and gathering material for his recently published book: Ospreys: Revival of a Global Raptor. Part travelogue, part natural history, this lecture celebrates the revival of a global raptor. Poole’s book will be available for purchase and signing.
