Ciril Ostroznik

It is with great sadness that we report that Ciril passed away suddenly on 24th March 2020
He will be a huge loss to the Raptor World, and in particular, to the Ospreys.
Because of Ciril’s work there are now many nesting osprey pairs in our Region.
He was training his son-on-law to take over from him, and we wish him as much success as Ciril had.
Our Condolences to Ciril’s family.
