UV leaves Northumberland!

After crossing the border between Cumbria and Northumberland at around 08.30 UTC yesterday morning UV flew into Scotland at about 17.20!

He stayed on the North Tyne until about 14.00 then flew NNE. At 14.29 he was near Otterburn at a height above terrain of c340m. He was 26 km from Kielder and with good visibility in the area at the time he would have seen Kielder Water. But continued on to the North Sea instead.

He flew along near the coast between Holy Island and Berwick-upon-Tweed.

UV ended his day roosting in Monynut Forest in the Lammermuir Hills and close to a massive windfarm, Crystal Rig.

Today his data was early. The battery voltage was improving and the greater number of fixes provide greater insight into his activity. He hadn’t travelled far by 09.03 – the last fix -but his course would take him to the river Tweed. Will he have tarried there?

There is heavy rain in the Borders at the moment. Conditions are likely to remain changeable.
