Osprey (Pandion haliaetus) fishing, Kangasala, Finland.
Osprey at work (Pandion haliaetus), FINLAND/KANGASALA, PIRKANMAA. The osprey is a true global traveller and is found in every continent except Antarctica. Most of Europe’s ospreys breed in the north – Finland, Norway, Sweden and Russia - travelling south for the winter. This fishing-specialist has made a comeback in recent years due to a reduction of poisonous man-made toxins in their food, less persecution and better protection. Stopping the illegal shooting of migrating raptors in Malta, is of an enormous importance for this and several other species.
