It’s starting to feel spring like, with some really nice warm days and the oystercatchers, curlews and lapwings have arrived on the inland fields, but today it’s back to snow. The tracked ospreys are all still in their wintering sites, but they should move soon, especially the furthest south – Nimrod. In late February, a friend emailed saying he saw one flying north over Madrid and a few days ago there was one flying north in Hampshire. In Scotland, the sun is now rising higher and the satellite transmitters are starting to work better now that the solar panels are charging the batteries. Tom left home again on 1ist March and has been away now for 4 days so it looks like his parents have pushed him out, as they start the count down to egg-laying and a new breeding season. Alma has been moving about in Deeside and the Angus glens, and is now back in Glen Tanar. The juvenile sea eagles are still both on Mull and the transmitters are starting to give more data on their movements. As soon as the ospreys start flying north – we will update the pages regularly.
