Ozzie's restlessness returned along with his strength. Ozzie wanted to be on the move again. After all, his journey was barely half done. He began wandering southwards along the Moroccan coast feeding on the way. Along the bleaker stretches of coastline Ozzie pushed on in migratory flight, going off passage for a few hours here and there to feed over  coastal lagoons or in the sea itself. Ozzie passed through Mauritania and continued into Senegal. After twelve days Ozzie came to the journeys end.

The huge river deltas and massive estuaries of Senegal were teeming with birds and food. Ozzie found one particularly to his liking. The changing tides of the shallow winding river exposed mudflats and sandbanks reaching eight kilometres inland. Each incoming tide raced over the flats and shoals of fish followed, in water barely deep enough to cover their backs. For fish-eating birds every tide was a bonanza. November was the beginning of the dry season, and further upstream less and less water was flowing down from the interior. In the river meanders the receding water left isolated pools and trapped catfish. Over the months that followed life was easy for Ozzie - but not without its moments.

Most Ospreys from Europe spend the winter in west Africa. Scottish birds have been found wintering in Mauritania, Senegal, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Benin and Gambia. Ospreys breeding in Sweden winter a little further east, and those from Finland even further east. Some return to the same estuaries year after year.
