I offered yesterday to start a new Topic once Bynack had fledged, but as we now have the updated Satellite Tracking page, and biography pages for Tore and Bynack, and there are some tracking results for Tore on Google Earth, I’ve gone ahead with it.
A brief introduction to the ospreys we’re tracking – first, the class of 2011.
Tore – link to her Biography
Tore is the elder of this year’s juveniles, her ring is blue/white 48. She fledged on Tuesday 12th July aged 54 days, and has started to do a little exploring.
Bynack – link to his Biography
Tore’s younger brother, ring blue/white 47. Bynack is aged 53 days today and has yet to fledge.
Edit: He has fledged, at 10.18 am today 16/7.
Rothes – link to her Biography
Rothes is the eldest of EJ and Odin’s offspring, hatched at Loch Garten in 2009. Her ring is white/black PJ. She migrated as a juvenile to Guinea-Bissau, and spent her formative months on the small island of Unhocomozinho, in the Bijagos Archipelago. Now a sub-adult, she has travelled north to Europe for the first time this summer and is currently in the Gironde estuary in SW France, where she also spent 6 weeks on her way south in 2009. So far, she has not returned to the UK.
Rothes' earlier travels were followed in this thread, now closed.
Thanks for starting the new thread, Sue.
I see Tore has already ventured over the low hill immediately behind (and out of sight of) the nest. The other points away from the nest are, I think, the dead tree near the camera.
Sue Thank you very much for starting this new thread. Beautifully done as always!
ChloeB and Tiger's data site ? Link to the Important Loch Garten Links
The hill to the SE of the nest is Tore Hill, from which Tore takes her name.
Bynack More is a peak in the Cairngorms which overlooks the Abernethy reserve.
Rothes (the place) is a small town in the county of Moray known for its whisky distilleries. At the time Rothes was ringed, Richard Thaxton explained that a patron of the primary school in Rothes had supported the tracking project.
The links are to Geograph, a useful site when tracking the ospreys in Britain.
Thanks Sue, this is brilliant.

Thanks from me also SueC.
Thank You, Sue - I saw your discussions earlier about how this should be re-arranged, now. This is great.
Thanks Sue, As always, very efficient.

Sat track schedule.
LG May 8, data (2pt) every 7 days. SWT every 3 days from Mar16
Rothes on GE has been updated to the 14th with a lot more points. She was at Hourtin by the Atlantic coast on the 11th.
Much easier to see what she's up to now that they have separated this year's route from the southbound migration :)
Rothes seems to have got fed up with the caviar! :)
I have never tried caviar, have you Tiger? :)
Can't say I really fancy it though I do like fish.
Is there a way to remove the other, older, tracks apart from just unchecking the boxes each time?
Thank You Sue much easier to follow now.
