Migration has started

For one of the steppe eagles we are tracking, autumn migration has started.  On 4 September it left an area where it had been staying for a couple of weeks in western Kazakhstan, and today it sent data showing that it was in Turkmenistan (near the town of Turkmenbashi near the Caspian Sea).  During that move it has moved out of range of the GSM network, so there are currently gaps in the data, but those should be filled in while it is within the range of the network.  Anyway, that move means that this bird is now south of the other steppe eagle we are tracking, which hasn't made a move south yet.

With migration time upon us, we expect the other eagle to make a move soon.  Visit the blog regularly during this time, if you want to keep up with their progress.  I guess they will head back to Oman, but perhaps not.
