UV at Kielder

Data received tonight revealed UV spent today at Kielder! He had crossed the Scottish border and was flying fast at just before 07.00 BST. He left Kielder – which experienced a day of heavy blustery showers but sun at times – at about 17.30 BST.

A graphic from Paul shows that despite the weather (and a limited number of fixes still) he roamed around quite extensively.

    It is not often we get to see a tracked juvenile come home. Just fantastic news.

      It isn’t just a great achievement for Kielder but for Glaslyn too, Viv. UV’s migration was anything but ‘standard’, if there is such a thing, he has achieved so much to arrive back at his natal site.

    WooHoo!! The boy’s back in town!! Congratulations UV – glad you’ve made it and thanks to Joanna and Paul for getting his whereabouts out to us all :-)

      We’re very glad he didn’t just perform a quick fly over, JW! Anybody seeing an osprey at Kielder today had better have the exact time and place to hand!

        So am I Joanna! …. UV’s is the very 1st Osprey migration back home I’ve followed from beginning to end. The thought UV completing that round-trip safely and well is overwhelming. Heaven knows what you’re feeling but tissue box in overdrive here!
