When will 09 depart?

With the Manton Bay family all heading south, the last Osprey left in Rutland is 09(98). Last year he started his migration on 2nd September, but he appears in no hurry to leave this year, despite the fact that its now two weeks since his family departed. Yesterday evening he was perched on Lagoon 4 – which has become a favourite perching spot recently.

As soon as 09 does leave, we’ll be posting regular updates on his migration. His satellite transmitter is on a three day transmission cycle with the next batch of data due in tomorrow. I wonder if he will still be in Rutland? Watch this space.
