Migration Update 23rd September: Blue 44 stays put & Blue YD heads for the sea!

We were lucky enough to receive tracking data from both of our young ospreys today (An unusual occurrence… perhaps we will not get any tomorrow!).  Blue 44 stayed a little longer on the fishing lake at Étang Blanc, before heading very slightly south to the nature reserve at Étang Noir.  There are definite parallels here with the lochs at Lowes and Butterstone – perhaps he has found a home away from home?

Blue YD continued due south-west in Morocco yesterday.  Having passed through the Tamri National Park, he headed out to sea just after 2pm… After about 10 miles he decided to follow the coastline, before heading straight back towards land at 4pm. Fortunately, he made a beeline directly to the Sous-Massa National Park, a haven for birds and an important conservation area for the Northern Bald Ibis.

Closer to home we have a autumn walk coming up on Thursday 27th from Dunkeld to Loch of the Lowes, guided by our lovely ranger Emma.  Details about this and other SWT events can be found by clicking here – just let us know by phone (01350 727337) or email (lochofthelowes@swt.org.uk) if you’d like to come along to any!
