Fearna starts her migration

Fearna was still at her nest area until at least 4.40 pm on 25th, then we lost signals due to low battery strength, but at 2pm on 26th she was well south in Perthshire near Blackford, and then flew west along the hills and was perched just east of Dunblane at 4pm and 5pm. An hour later she was flying SSW past Stirling and at 6pm heading over the northern suburbs of Glasgow. She crossed the city and settled for the night in a wooded farmland ‘island’ to the east of Paisley after a flight of 96 miles.

First day’s migration
