Loch Garten Osprey 'Millicent' roosts at Rowsley 24th August

Thanks to the individual who posted the comment on the Osprey record from 23rd August providing details from the RSPB web site of the satellite tracking information on Millicent.

There is more information here, but I've included the extract and map below.

The detail is as follows: At around 10.30 GMT on 24 August she passed into England just N of Catcleugh Reservoir, Northumberland where she may have had a refuelling stop.  At 13.00 GMT she was W of Barnard Castle and crossed into S Yorkshire just after 15.00 GMT travelling S to pass between Bradford and Leeds before finally coming to roost at 19.00 GMT in woods N of Rowsley and E of Bakewell in Derbyshire.  She travelled 310 km on this day.
There is limited data for 25 August but she appears to have had a late start at 11.00 GMT travelling SSE.  She may have spent some time exploring the River Derwent in the Matlock area.  She may have only travelled 12 km or so during the day.  On 26 August at 09.00 GMT she was travelling SSW from Cromford, Derbyshire passing over Birmingham and Ross on Wye before coming to roost at 19.00 GMT in woods on the Gloucestershire/Monmouthshire border, 6 km SSE of Monmouth.  Millie travelled 170 km today and overall around 490 km for the three days.  She has also reached some real heights of 1320 m and speeds of 41 kph!

According to the blog she had arrived in Mauritania on the west coast of Africa by the 7th September.
