Today’s data arrived early. UV had set off on the next stage of his migration, but it is likely that we won’t learn about the rest of today until late tomorrow.
We have the full data for yesterday, and it shows UV travelled 360 km from near Longtown in Cumbria to a woodland roost north of Gloucester.
UV passed Windermere to his right, flew over Blackburn and was west of Stoke on Trent by 15.00 UTC.
He stopped on a tree at a field edge at 18.40 before finding his final roost spot.
Today he set off early. His first fix away from the roost site was near Stroud at 06.07, where he was seen and reported as an osprey sighting to BirdGuides. He was then spotted at Slimbridge, flying down the Severn. Times on the image have been converted to BST to link in with the sighting reports – details are only available to subscribers.
UV’s last position was north of Bristol. His course was taking him towards Bournemouth, but with the wind he may drift eastwards. Eyes to the skies!
