Still in Scotland

Slowly south to Fife

29 August 2011
Ozwold left Glenmuick in the morning and at 2pm was perched at the south end of Glen Clova in Angus. At 4 PM he turned south and flew over Forfar and an hour later was circling over two small lochs at Monikie. He then headed out over the Tay estuary from Broughty Ferry and at 6 PM was flying east towards Tayport. At 7 PM he was roosting in a small wood just north of Cupar in Fife. His day's flight was 82 kms.

Turned back north

30 August 2011
Instead of carrying on south, Ozwold turned back north and at 10 AM was over Dundee flying NNE. At 11 AM he was flying north at 22km/hr east of Forfar and an hour later had settled on the River South Esk between Finavon Castle and Brechin. He was still beside the river but a little further east at 2 PM and had flown just 46 km during the day.

Stopping over in Angus

Last night he was roosting beside the river a little further west near Justinhaugh. The weather has been overcast and he has been settled along the river for three days. 

August 30th to September 2nd

Still in Angus

06 September 2011

Ozwold remains in the same area of Angus, although on 4th Sept he set off NE and at 1pm stopped by a small river north of Strathcathro Hospital. He flew on up in to Glen Esk and at 3pm had turned and was flying back down the glen at Auchmill. At 4pm he was perched by the river north of Edzell and then flew to roost overnight in a farm shelter belt of trees SW of Edzell. Next day he flew back to his favourite haunts and was still there today. With bad weather arriving in scotland Roy Dennis hopes he stays put and feeds before starting to migrate when the weater improves.

Loactions 3rd to 6th September
