Earlier this summer we released a further seven White-tailed Eagles in partnership with Forestry England. You can read more here.

The honey buzzard is one of Britain’s most enigmatic and elusive birds, poorly named (being neither a buzzard nor an eater of honey) and under-reported. In August, Roy Dennis and the team fitted a highly sophisticated satellite transmitter to a female chick at a nest in Moray, northern Scotland. A month later, the bird left on migration for Africa, but experienced the most dramatic start to her journey, blown eastwards across the North Sea to Denmark. She survived, and after several days’ rest, continued on her journey, correctly turning south towards her destination.

Tim Mackrill tells the story of her journey so far, and describes what might yet be waiting for her, while Roy explains more about the species as a whole.
