UV reaches Northumberland

Despite concerns that UV’s tracker battery would have shut down because of low voltage this proved not to be the case. An email this afternoon revealed he reached Northumberland, if not Kielder, 58 days after beginning his first Spring migration.

He wasn’t far from Kielder as this image shows.

The bottom left fix was at 08.18 UTC. The next two were perched in trees by the North Tyne.

Street View doesn’t cover the single track road that runs alongside the river there, but it matters not because yours truly lives but one mile away!

So where was I at the time? About to drive past on the way to look for him in Cumbria!

The last fix was at 11.35 UTC so he could have reached Kielder in the early afternoon.

    What an amazing coincidence for you all. Good to know he is nearly there.
