There's change now......(and a Reserve "first")
richard thaxton 9 Oct 2013 3:11 PM

BREAGHA'S ON THE MOVE, AT LAST.....

Breagha has finally continued his journey S towards Africa having spent 32 days in the Loire/Vienne River areas of France. He headed S on 5 October and over the next four days travelled some1580 km including a one day stint of 610 km on 4 October. He spent most of the time on 3 and 4 October on the N bank of the Loire opposite Montsorreau.

Sometime between 07.00 and 09.00 GMT on 5 October he flew S crossing over the town of Fontevraud-L'abbye, the golf course at Loudon-Roiffé, the towns of Les Trois-Moutiers and Sant-Savin before crossing over the Dordogne River near Saint-André-de-Cubzac and passing to the E of Bordeaux. He finally came to roost after flying 295 km in woods to the SE of Cabanac-et-Villagrains in Aquitaine.

On 6 October he started in a SW direction travelling towards the Bay of Biscay crossing into Spain to the E of Donostia-San Sebastian in the Navarra region at around 13.00 GMT thereby avoiding the high Pyrenees. At 17.00 GMT he reached the highest recorded altitude of 208 km flying SSW to the N of Sorai in the Castilla y Leon region. At 19.00 GMT he was in the La Mancha region and still flying high passing to the W of Madrid at around 21.00 GMT. He later came to roost 5.5 km ESE of the town of Torrijos in La Mancha. A mammoth journey of 610 km for the day!

On 7 October he was up bright and early travelling generally SSW. At 07.00 GMT he stopped at the Rio Tujo probably to refuel. At 12.00 GMT he crossed the SW tip of Extramedura flying over the Sierra Morena Mountains. After flying 280 km he came to roost on the Rio Guadalquivir, 4 km NE of Lora Del Rio in the Seville region. Sound familiar? Well it should, because Caledonia has also visited this area in the last year.

The 8 October was another early start and he was passing over the southern outskirts of Seville (Fuente Del Rey) at 09.00 GMT. Around 11.30 GMT he crossed the coast in the Gulf of Cadiz some 30 km NW of Cadiz and after a course correction to S at 13.00 GMT he was last recorded at 17.00 GMT over the Atlantic some 90 km NW of Rabat, Morocco. There was no more data for him or Oighrig after this time so do not despair the missing data will be available on the next download!

OIGHRIG

Oighrig has continued to explore the area to the N of Joal Fadiout travelling short distances in an area of 1700 hectares. He has visited the coast on many occasions presumably to fish and has changed his inland roosting area on different days.

CALEDONIA

She has also not been very active spending most of her time on the Rio Guadalquivir site with short (<2km) trips early morning to the SW and to the Rivera De Huelva. ON 5 October at 15.00 GMT she was 6 km NE of the Rio and flying N at 104 m altitude towards El Gordillo. She was back at the Rio by 17.00 GMT.

The next download will be on 12 October and it will be very interesting to see where Breagha ends up.

My thanks to data-Mike for the latest downloaded information....

Landfall for Breagha.....Phew!

Posted 1 hour ago
by richard thaxton

The latest information provided by Mike (thanks Mike) is as follows. When last we looked Breagha was all at sea, but thankfully he has since made landfall in Morocco.
BREAGHA
At 05.00 GMT on 9 October Breagha was roosting 13 km E of Casablanca in Morocco so he made it safely to land. It is not clear what happened since 17.00 GMT on 8 October but it does not matter. From the roost site he travelled S passing 35 km to the E of Marrakech at 15.00 GMT and at 17.00 GMT he was at an altitude of 311 m flying over the Haut Atlas mountains coming to roost at 20.00 GMT at an altitude of 219 m still in the Atlas range. He travelled 330 km on this day.
He set off early on 10 October travelling SW finally coming to roost at 20.00 GMT on the edge of the Mamada Du Drāa Desert having travelled 295 km.
On 11 October he started the main Sahara Desert crossing travelling SE briefly entering Algeria at around 09.00 GMT before entering NE Mauritania at around 14.00 GMT before coming to roost in the desert at 21.00 GMT. This was another long travelling day of 340 km.

OIGHRIG
He really has not moved far appearing to spend most of his time in area 5 km NE of Joal Fadiouth. He has made regular mid-morning fishing trips to the coast as shown on the map.

GRAZIE FERENZ...che paura per Breagha quando ho visto che volava in mare aperto, per fortuna è rientrata sulla terra ferma anche se adesso sta affrontando il deserto...incrociamo le dita

OIGHRIG invece staziona nella stessa zona concedendosi regolari battute di pesca sulla costa a metà mattinata

Worry ye not, Breagha's through the Sahara.....Phew!
4 hours ago by richard thaxton

When last we looked, Breagha was heading ominously south east, inland, towards the interior of the Sahara Desert. Thankfully he appears to have adjusted his innate on-borad SatNav and veered south west, safely negotiating the Sahara.

First, the Atlantic sea crossing to worry about, then the Sahara, both now thankfully behind him. Phew! The latest data download from Mike reveals the following information;

BREAGHA

He has made it safely across the Sahara and is heading for Senegal after a long journey of over 1400 km in the last three days.

He left the roost around 09.00 GMT on 12 October heading SSW cutting back towards the coast and corrected his direction to SW at 16.00 GMT. Breagha crossed the Tropic of Cancer at around 17.00 GMT finally coming to roost at 20.00 GMT. He travelled 385 km this day and most at high altitudes topping out at a recorded 269 m at 18.00 GMT.

On 13 October he travelled a massive 630 km and was recorded flying at 20-52 km/hr. and altitudes up to 240 km. Was he avoiding sandstorms and also taking advantage of some strong NE winds? His journey started between 08.00 and 10.00 GMT travelling SW finally coming to roost at 20.00 GMT.

On 14 October he again left the roost between 08.00 and 10.00 GMT flying SW passing 90 km to the E of the coastal town of Nouakchott at 14.00 GMT. He eventually came to roost at 20.00 GMT 25 km N of Rosso on the Senegal border with water within easy flying distance. Today’s total journey was 400 km. This roost is close to where Oighrig roosted by Lake Bkiz on 10 September.
Immagine
OIGHRIG

Oighrig is still exploring a small area to the N of Joal Fadiouth, Senegal, and has made ‘regular’ trips to the coast at 14.00 and 16.00 GMT on 12 October, 10.00 GMT on 13 October and 10.00 and 12.00 GMT on 14 October so presumably this is where he feeds.

CALEDONIA

She continues her sedentary existence on the Rio Guadalquivir which is obviously providing her with enough food to keep her happy. She did make one longish trip on 14 October when she was recorded at 09.00 GMT 11 km NE of the roost site flying W over the Rio Guadalquivir N of San José de la Rinconada. She was back at the regular roost at 11.00 GMT.

The next download will be on 18 October.

Breagha is taking things a little easier .....
19 hours ago by Mike H

Breagha is exploring around the Senegal/Mauritania border whilst Oighrig and Caledonia are not moving very far.

BREAGHA

Breagha has taken a breather in his long distance travels and has only really done some local travelling around the Senegal/Mauritania border.

On 15 October he started by travelling S crossing into Senegal at around 11.00 GMT turning westward at 12.00 GMT essentially following an unnamed (at least I cannot find one) tributary of the Senegal River. At 14.00 GMT he entered the Oiseaux de Djoudi National Park , changing direction at 16.00 GMT before coming to roost at 18.00 GMT. A modest day of travelling with only 92 km covered.

On 16 October he left the roost between 06.00 and 08.00 GMT travelling SW until at 10.00 GMT he was travelling NW before crossing back into Mauritania just N of Maka at around 11.00 GMT. He travelled through the Diawling National Park and at 12.00 GMT he began flying over a large expanse of what appears to be an estuarine/flood plain/marsh area and over lake Tianbrank at around 15.00 GMT. At 16.00 GMT he had changed direction again and was heading NE inland to finally roost at 22.00 GMT. A similar distance covered of around 90 km.

At 10.00 GMT on 17 October Breagha was S of the roost near the coast and was flying SW. This was the last recorded data point for this download so is he going to continue S or loop back and continue to explore the Mauritania/Senegal border?
Immagine
OIGHRIG

No changes to report as he is still travelling locally around the area to the NW of Joal Fadiouth.

CALEDONIA

A similar story to Oighrig with no significant movement from his favourite Rio Guadalquivir site. The fishing must be good!

The next update will be on Monday.

Il 17 ottobre Breagha era a S vicino al posto dove si era fermata a fare sosta e stava volando verso SW. Ora non sanno se continuerà verso la costa o se tornerà indietro ad esplorare il confine Mauritania/Senegal...

BREAGHA TAKES A ROUND TRIP TO SENEGAL ……and mustard....
1 hour ago by richard thaxton

The latest data download tells the following about our birds:

BREAGHA

We left him travelling S on 17 October and he continued in this direction passing near Tianbrank Lake and exploring the wetland area from 14.00 GMT before coming to roost around 20.00 GMT. He travelled some 65 km in the day.

On 18 October he left the roost between 06.00 and 08.00 GMT to continue spending the day exploring the local area. He was recorded stationary on many occasions so presumably this was a fishing day. He eventually went to roost at around 22.00 GMT.

Initially on 19 October he continued to explore the local area but at 12.00 GMT he was heading S crossing into Senegal at around 15.00 GMT. Finally, having travelled 105 km, he roosted at 16.00 GMT some 20 km SE of Louga.

He left the roost on 20 October at around 08.00 GMT initially travelling S but then was heading N at 10.00 GMT to follow the coast crossing back into Mauritania N of St Louis. He was still travelling N towards Tianbrank Lake at 16.00 GMT (the last data point). Another 100 km covered this day.
Immagine
OIGHRIG

He has not moved far from the area NW of Joal Fadiouth generally being recorded within a 2-3 km range of where he has been roosting. On 19 October he was on the coast at 10.00 GMT and again at 10.00 and 16.00 GMT on 20 October.

CALEDONIA


She continues to stay in her favourite area on the Rio Guadalquivir and was recorded mostly in two roost areas of trees on the E bank. On 18 October she was travelling W of the Rio at 13.00 GMT and in a similar position at 09.00 GMT on 19 October so she may have gone much farther although she was back at the Rio within two hours on both occasions.

Next download is on Thursday.

Meanwhile here on the Rez, the winter thrush arrival has ramped-up from a steady trickle to a veritable torrent! Redwings and fieldfares have been pouring in over the past week or so, and at the weekend the skies seemed full of the sight & sound of 'em - the chattering calls of fieldfares and the thin seeeeep calls of redwings. Just marvellous. This, together with the simply stunning autumn colours - the best I've seen, I reckon, (but I probably say that every year!), made it a glorious, if a tad damp weekend, here in Strathspey. When out for a walk yesterday, mustard, was the word I'd use to describe the scene - the birches, and aspens a mix of Djon, English, French and wholegrain in their mix of yellow, ochres and browns, and these together with the reds, oranges and copper tones of the rowans and bird cherries, the autumn colours really are fantastic this year. Any of you that know Grantown-on-Spey will know the drive over the Spey Bridge through a corridor of beech trees, equally spectacular in their autumnal tones too.

We've had some very still evenings lately too, making Loch Garten glassy smooth with some wonderful reflections. There are not many geese about just now, just a few wigeon, teal and goldeneye, plus 20-30 goosanders arriving at dusk to roost on the loch overnight, often arriving just after the darkness, but their whooooosh, as they plane-in and plough the water's surface is audible in the silence. Where ever you are, it's a great time of year out there, be sure to get and if you can, and enjoy it.

Loch Garten Ospreys migration update 24th October
With ospreys gone, winter work has begun......but osprey news too.
1 day ago by richard thaxton

The osprey latest is as follows:

Breagha seems to be favouring Mauritania

BREAGHA

Breagha seems to have settled for the moment in the extreme SW tip of Mauritania near the Senegal border and 10 km WSW of Tiguet, Senegal. He has moved very short distances and has visited the Tianbrank Lake area at 14.00 GMT on both 21 and 22 October and at 14.00 and 16.00 GMT on 23 October. Tianbrank Lake appears to be a large expanse of water very rich in wildlife including pelicans so the fishing must be good.
Immagine
OIGHRIG
Oighrig has not moved far from his spot NW of Joal Fadiouth. He appears to favour a roost site in sparsely wooded landscape 2.5 km SSW of Ndianda where he has roosted on 20, 21, and 22 October. He is regularly recorded near an unnamed river slightly to the S of this roost. He broke this pattern on 23 October and roosted further N some 2 km NNW of Ndianda after spending most of the day in the area of the river.
Immagine
CALEDONIA

No significant change in Caledonia's activity. Most of the recorded data shows her on a short stretch of the Rio Guadalquivir although she was over the Rivera de Huelva 2 km NNW of the Rio at 09.00 GMT and flying N but she was back at her favourite haunt by 11.00 GMT.

The next update will be on Sunday.

Oighrig is doing more exploring

4 hours ago by Mike H

OIGHRIG


Oighrig has shown the most activity over the last three days moving around 20 km per day exploring the area around the fishing town of Joal-Fadiouth in Senegal. He has roosted inland each day but at different spots.

He was around the coast on 24 October at 10.00 GMT and 08.00 GMT on 25 October. On 25 October he roosted 1.3 km W of Keur Kaba at around 20.00 GMT which is SE of his ‘normal range’.

On 26 October he set off in a WSW direction and was over the coast on the S tip of Joal-Fadiouth at 10.00 GMT travelling N along the coast until he stopped at 12.00 GMT on the coast N of the town before turning E to go inland. He stopped again between 14.00 and 16.00 GMT then travelled NW to come to roost at 22.00 GMT.
Immagine
BREAGHA

He has continued to explore the area in the extreme SW corner of Mauritania and has only appeared to travel within a radius of 6 km from his roost area. He appears to be using Tianbrank Lake for fishing as he has been recorded in the area on 24 October between 12.00 and 14.00 GMT, 25 October between 10.00 and 14.00 GMT and again on 26 October between 14.00 and 16.00 GMT.

CALEDONIA


Recordings still show her spending her time on the small stretch of the Rio Guadalquivir with occasional short excursions near the Rio.

The next download will be on Wednesday.
