Ranging widely

On 21st flew north from the Carlisle area and was at Stirling at 5pm, Loch Tummel at 6pm and at 8pm was perched near an area where an unattached female was holding a new nest. He roosted at Loch an Eilein, passed over his natal area next day before heading to Donside, he then flew south to Glentanar, spent the afternoon west of Braemar before flying north and roosting overnight in Strathdon. On 23rd Rothiemurchus flew down to Dunkeld – Blair Atholl area and on 24th was near Loch Tummel. The north to south distance is 170 miles, which shows the extent of ranging of pre-breeding adults.
