LOTL NOV 2012

  • New blog re Blue44 & BlueYD

  • A very interesting blog. Lovely pictures of Blue 44

    A bit worrying that he has not phoned home. Still it is not the dreaded static signal.

    Tension until we get the next update.

     

  • Oh god, another rollercoaster of emotions ahead of us for the next few days. Tiger you got time for some analysis,  research work to ease our worries.  I have no idea what the different readings mean.

  • Feel sick.       Lovely photos of him and it does look very grey but he looks well.     When will the next data come in?    Tension putting it mildly Tiger.

    Nothing to analyse this time as there is update. Last time Blue 44 phoned home was November 10th and he was alive and well. Nothing since.

    It could be a number of reasons not all of them bad.

  • He looks so alert in the photo facing the camera - such a worry.   He is my favourite because of his mum

    They are such lovely pictures.

     

  • It is amazing how this little Osprey with a world famous mother has been photographed each step of his journey.

  • Thanks for the clarification Tiger I find I have no idea what GPS/non GPS differences are and sadly too lazy to learn

    Basically GPS are the more accurate readings but sometimes the GPS signal fails and we are left with the less accurate non GPS ones.

     

  • Poor Sandra when she logs into this news. That's a week of worrying for her already with another few days to go. Presumably if readings have changed to 6 days we won't get an update until Monday.

  • Fingers crossed time again!

  • Just got home from shopping to read the news. I remain hopeful he is ok and that the lack of data is due to one of the reasons mentioned.

    Wonderful photos indeed and doesn't he look well? :)

  • Fearna had similar transmitter problems when on an earlier  stopover on a Spanish mountain river:

    "Fearna is still in the same river system but the transmitter is not sending data properly with just non-GPS locations on 22nd and 26th October"

  • Here we go again!!!!  Hope he is OK.  Brilliant photos.
