Hope removed satellite tag

On 21st June, Hope’s satellite tag stopped moving south of Cranstackie. I emailed Derek Spencer, who is carrying out his PhD on golden eagles in NW Sutherland, and he went to Coire na Cuile to see what had happened. He found the satellite tag lying on the ground and sent it back to me. Very many thanks, Derek.  An examination showed that she had underdone the cotton stitching and detached the tag. I’m pleased that she was not dead and now continues her life without us tracking her. Good luck.
