Good afternoon, Bev, Steph, carolyn and all -

The osprey have been gone from the nests I check most often for at least a few days now - and it looks as if the wind is blowing from the North today - which would help them on their migration.

As you've all said so well, it is a bittersweet moment - fly safe, Mel - and have lots of fun and fish! :love:

And a belated "Safe Travels - and lots of fun and fish" to Boski, and have a good winter, Oscar and Ethel, and we'll be looking for you in the spring. :love:

I couldn't have said it better myself Bev! Thank you so much for this season and to you also Carolyn and Judy.

It has been a fun season and that sweet Mel just couldn't pass up a few more fish from Dad. And I bet Boksi has learned so much already on her migration!

See you next time Ethel and Oscar :rh:

Good night everyone :grhug:
