Welcome to the Scottish Wildlife Trust's osprey tracking project. Now in its second year, we are currently tracking an osprey chick from Loch of the Lowes (Blue YZ) as it makes its way from Dunkeld to West Africa - a journey of over 3,000 miles in total.
You can track our osprey chicks (from both 2012 and 2013) using the map and tabs below, or follow the instructions to view the migration in Google Earth. Regular updates are also available on our blog.
You can turn individual migration tracks on and off using the checkboxes below. Please note that since Nov 2012 we have not been receiving data on Blue 44.

This female osprey hatched at about 8.45am on Saturday 1 June 2013. Its mother - affectionately known to many as 'Lady' - is thought to be the oldest breeding osprey in the UK. 'Blue YZ' fledged on Tuesday 23 July 2013 at 10.08am, becoming our resident female's 50th chick to fledge - a new record for the species in the UK.
If you would like to follow the migration of the satellite-tracked ospreys within Google Earth, you can add the osprey satellite data to your copy of Google Earth. If you do not already have this software, download it for free from the Google Earth website.
Once the ospreys are in your list of Places you can use the toolbar on the left hand side to toggle on/off each tracked osprey and double click them to zoom straight to their location.
