Aigan sets off on first migration

Aigan left her breeding area in Moray after 9am and an hour later was in the centre of the Cairngorms; at midday she was at Aberfeldy (close to Rothiemurchus’s favourite haunts) and at 2.15pm flew over Glasgow at a low altitude. Flew down through Ayrshire and at 5pm was near Port William, south of Wigton, and then struck off over the sea to the Isle of Man. Passed Ramsay at 6pm and at 7pm was just south of the island but turned back and roosted overnight in the grounds of a big house just west of Castle Douglas, after a flight of 257 miles.

Migration on August 30th
