Still same area

Fearna has changed her behaviour ad is now roosting at night nearer the river – this could be due to the fact that any adult or sub-adult ospreys will have migrated north and left the wintering grounds free for last summer’s ¬†juvenile ospreys.

NW into Portugal again

Rothiemurchus roosted on the banks of the River Guadalquivir at La Senuela on night of 18th/19th April and next morning moved across the river and settled there 0700-0800GMT before heading NW over Isla Mayor. He flew on NW between Seville and Huelva and after 1400hrs flew across the border into Portugal. At 1600 and 1700 was near a small dam 15 km SW of Moura and then settled nearby for the night in olive farms after a day’s flight of¬†181 km. Once again he seem to be heading for Galicia and the long crossing of the Bay of Biscay – hope the winds are not strong easterly
