||Incredible. Thanks for sharing, Tiger.

||It certainly is incredible and at the same time, nerve wracking! It's beyond comprehension how these 3 month old Juvies, survive at all! So many obstacles, etc...and yes, "survival of the fittest". I just wish most, if not all of these juvies were "the fittest":-)

||Google Earth has now been updated and the tracks are available there. Also on the Loch Garten maps. See Loch Garten Ospreys

||Wow. Well done Bynack! But it's pretty tense stuff following these youngsters - zero altitude doesn't make good reading, so I'm glad we didn't know about that until he was safely back on land. Fingers crossed they both reach Africa safely.

||Tiger, dident the LG youngsters fly SE and linger on the SE coast of England either last year or 2009? Its strange that Odins offspring have this SE 'ly orientation at the first stage of migration isnt it? Most other juveniles go in a SW direction.

||Anne you can see all the tracked ospreys on that link. Tore's migration at first was very like Rothes'
Maybe there was a westerly wind blowing on Sunday?

||Maybe, I cant find any records of the weather. I have a birder friend at Minsmere and he tells me that ringed birds are rare on the Suffolk coast, they are usually presumed to be Scandinavian.

||I am so pleased to be able to follow these two on their migration.
Last year's chicks were sadly anonymous once they had flown south (or whatever direction they flew in) having never been ringed, named or tagged.
