North Monadhliaths

On 13th flew to Coignafearn and Garrogie, and then on 16th to Dunmaglass and Aberarder, and on 17th back to Coignafearn.

Big move down to Loch Earn area

Angus 33 left the Angus Glens on 6th March and flew to the Glen tilt area of North Perthshire. On 7th flew south over the Pitlochry area and from 7th to 11th March was living in the hills SE of north Loch Tay (same area as eaglet Foinavon).  At 2pm on 11th March she flew on SW to the hills south of Loch Earn.

Mar 1st - 11th

Moved to Corwharn and almost certainly met sibling 26

Angus 33 was in Glenfeshie 15th -16th, and then flew to north Perthshire. On 17th flew to Glen Shee and at 3pm was at Mount Blair. Flew on to Badandun Hill and ranged in that area south to Cat Law on 20th; 23rd to 24th just west of Corwharn, favourite area for Angus 26.

Feb 15th - 24th

Through Monadhliaths to the Slochd

33 was in the SW end of Monadhliaths on 7th and that day flew to Coignafearn Estate at head of River Findhorn, where it ranged until 10th when it was near the Slochd, north of Carrbridge.

Feb 7th - 10th

Stayed in Carrbridge area

33 did not go SE after all as at midday on 2nd February was SW of The Slochd, and north over the strath from its location on 31st January.

Locations Feb 2nd (red dot) and Jan 31st (blue dot)

Monadhliaths and one 31st heading towards Strathspey and Cairngorms

The GPS is not picking up signals yet, but non GPS signals on 27th showed it roosting near Lock Killin, on the 29th in Coignafearn and this morning (31st) at 6.05am was in Kinveachy Forest, near Carrbridge. Signals at midday suggest it is heading back to Deeside.

Moving back east

Angus 33 near Loch Arkaig on 15th January and then poor quality transmissions showed movement east to the Newtonmore area on 19th and north to Garrogie in the Monadhliaths on 21st January.

Now in Lochaber

At last in this sunny weather, the transmitter started sending GPS locations, which showed that Angus 33 had moved to Kinlochleven area. On the afternoon of 13th, she was SE of Stob Ban, above Kinlochleven,a nd then moved west on 14th to Tom Meadhoin. On 15th in the morning in the steep wooded hillside above Loch Leven opposite the Kinlochleven campsite.

Jan 13th - 15th above kinlochleven

To Argyll

The weather in the west has been overcast and wet for nearly a month so the transmitters have had a bad time for GPS recording. Non GPS locations on 7th and 9th January were between Loch Etive and Bridge of Orchy.

To Drumochter

Two non-GPS class 1 locations came in for Angus 33 around 7.30pm on 3rd January from the Perthshire mountains north of the A9 and at the south end of the Drumochter Pass.  This is the first big move outside its normal ranging.  There were attempts at GPS locating on 2nd and 3rd, but all recorded low voltage, so the battery is starting to charge. This eaglet may be  a female and I think the larger feathers on these bigger birds may obscure the solar panel more than on small sized male eagles.
