Around 10.00 local time on 30 March, the Steppe eagle we fitted with a transmitter in January (162312) started its migration, leaving Tahwa landfill and heading east. It spent the night of the 30th NW of Bahla, then the night of 31st in Jebel Hafeet in Al Ain. The night of the 1st of April was spent on power pole about 10 km east of Madinat Zayed, Abu Dhabi. It will be interesting to see if this bird will catch up to the other we are tracking (see earlier post), which is wandering around along the Saudi-Kuwait border.
