Adult eagle news

It looks as if the adult eagle has moved close to the area it was staying in during winter last year. However these areas were visited only in February 2010.

Sadly, no news come from the youngster. Last fixes were on Jan 7, when the bird was at the southern tip of Sakhalin. We fear the bird may have attempted to cross over to the Kuril Islands, as it did last year.....

Early January

Early January has brought some movement by the eagles.

The youngster at the moment remains on the Aniva cape, the south eastern tip of  Sakhalin Island ( Probably it can not see Japan, and is reluctant to cross the open sea, as in the past winter.

The adult eagle, which crossed to Hokkaido at the beginning of the month has moved inland and is now in the area where it wintered last year.

New Year!

The adult eagle moved from the Kuril Islands to the Shiretoko peninsula, Hokkaido, Japan on  New Year's Eve. The picture shows only Doppler locations as the e-mails from Argos do not have the complete GPS sentences. Hope the youngster is doing well too.
