    There's a nice update here from the Dyfi Osprey Project. The first chick to leave the nest last year was called Einion and thanks to GPS tracking, we know that he's alive and well and currently holidaying in West Africa.

    Einion set off in the morning from Mid Wales on 31 August and by late afternoon...
