To Srathdon and then back to Borders

Rothiemurchus sateyd in the Borders until 16th, after roosting overnight at Bowhill. At midday on 16th he was tracking the Peebles road towards Penicuik and an hour later was flying over the Forth just east of the Rail Bridge at 80km/hr and at 839 metres altitude. At 2pm he was near Uchtermuckty and an hour later south of Dunkeld. The next signal (miserable overcast weather is preventing full charges of the battery) was at 9am on 17th May when he was near Braemar in Aberdeenshire. At 1pm he was near an old established osprey nest further north near the River Don and then at 3pm he was by the junction of the Braemar road east of Corgarff. The next signal on 18th May showed him back in the Borders near Yarrow at 4pm and by the River Ettrick at 5pm. Very interesting movements.

May 15th - 18th
