JUST a few months after one of the four osprey chicks introduced to the Pego-Oliva marshes was electrocuted a second bird has met the same fate. The female named Marina was found in Valencia’s l’Albufera nature park, eight months after being released into the wild. Her body was found (in a paddy field) thanks to the GPS tracker all the birds are equipped with. The autopsy last week confirmed the cause of death as electrocution, one of the greatest dangers to the creatures which have no real natural enemies. The Ministry of the Environment has renewed calls for electric cables to be removed as they kill countless birds of all sizes each year. They have held an emergency meeting with Iberdrola to discuss the matter.
