Lost sat-tag

Aquila flew down through the Dulnan Valley in early June and went to a roost by the river on 15th June, and the satellite tag became detached from the eagle. Somehow she picked at the stitching and removed it. The tag was recovered.  Sadly we will not be to follow the rest of her life
