UV isn’t showing any signs of staying in a relatively small area and building up reserves for his migration. On 13 August he began his day at Tindale Tarn before heading up to the Longtown area. In late afternoon, he was flying along the Esk estuary. The times are UTC on the image, add an hour for BST.
Did he return a few km upriver to roost? Not UV, it was a 90 km round trip into Scotland to the Black Esk reservoir to find his overnight spot.
UV had a quiet day after returning early to the Longtown area on 14 August. Yesterday he was off again, visiting Kielder then Tindale Tarn.
There were few fixes as UV reached Kielder, but he was possibly seen by Aydon on Nest 4 soon after arriving. He was definitely visible over Nest 4 30 minutes later.
Here is the whole ‘event’, press HD for best quality.
After UV departed, the next arrival was Blue CN2, not seen at Nest 2 – or by other Kielder nestcams – since 3 August, although he may have been one of the ‘distant dots’.
Aydon arrived to restore order soon after CN2 flew off.
UV is likely to be around for a while.
