Gail has been galvanised into action to do something practical, making every effort to ensure that CU2 Jimmy has not died in vain. She launched 'Operation Jimmy' on hearing of his tragic death on Monday 11 May 2015.
The energy giant SP Energy Networks who have given a fantastic response all along are taking needed steps for a positive outcome agreeing to make the electricity infrastructure Osprey-friendly + provide alternative perches.
A Glaslyn based Osprey Conservation Group who promote recovery of the Osprey numbers in Wales + UK are donating & installing 3 artificial nests with perches in a Joint Project with Scottish Power up on Hiraeth moor.
Osprey Projects, Wildlife / Nature Organisations + individuals with ground knowledge of Welsh Ospreys have been consulted about Osprey Risk zones to feed back to Scottish Power to map on and inform their modernisation programme.
Three landowners on Hiraeth moor fully supportive of 'Operation Jimmy' have each agreed and given signed consent to have an artificial Osprey nest with associated perches erected in a prime location on their land.
