 Larger spotted eagle Tõnn surprises us once more. The Scandinavian peninsula felt too small for him and neither did he find a mate there - now Tõnn tries his luck in Finland.
Excerpt from the migration map, data as of May 22
 
Finland is not the best place for finding a single greater spotted eagle lady either. Maybe he has to go to Karelia or Russia or return to Estonia ... We will see in due time.

While the greater spotted eagles show no hurry to set off on their migration journey, ospreys and black storks have mostly all already left Estonia. The last of our black storks to turn southwards was Valdur  from Võrumaa (although true, he has spent the last one and a half month in the Aardla polders near Tartu instead).
Black stork Oss has already arrived, and from August 17 Raivo too is at the Israeli fish ponds. Quite likely Toomas will soon be there too (although he isn’t very wiling to show us his locations), and Valdur. Our friend and colleague Carsten Rohde from Germany will soon visit them in the Jordan valley; then we will perhaps have more precise...

Information from yesterday, April 4, shows that Oss was the first black stork to arrive in its nesting area. He started on his last migration day in this spring on the morning of April 1, from south-eastern Latvia near Daugavpils, and reached his nesting place in Raplamaa before evening. During that day Oss flew at least 330 km. In the nesting season we will not show the exact locations of the birds on the map. Of the observed birds, Oss spent the winter nearest to us – in Israel.

Last to start on the spring migration was greater spotted eagle Tõnn – he left the El Hondo wetlands, on the coast of the Mediterranean, in the afternoon of April 2, and had reached the French border yesterday evening, April 4.
 
The information is...

The adult greater spotted eagle Noname, caught in Läänemaa near Tõnn’s home, has already covered nearly 1200 kilometres of its spring migration journey this year. Noname started travelling from the Göksu River delta on the shore of the Mediterranean on March 10, and reached eastern Bulgaria near the Serbian border on March 20.

Our three transmitter-equipped eagles are spending the winter in places so widely apart that it is difficult to show them on the same map:
 
Greater spotted eagle Tõnn, known to everybody, spends the second winter of his life in Spain, in the El Hondo wetlands. Since he doesn’t move around much, we can assume that things are to his liking there – enough food and not too much...

Tõnn observing the photographer from a dried eucalyptus branch.

Young greater spotted eagle Tõnn who spread his wings for the first time in Estonia last year is wintering for the second year already in south-eastern Spain, in the El Hondo Nature Park. This is a wetland in the middle of dry agricultural lands. Antonio Zaragozi, Eagle Club’s local contact there,...

In the afternoon of October 1 Tõnn reached his last year's winter quarters in Spain. His winter place is the El Hondo wetlands which belong to the most important bird life areas (IBAs) of the European Union.
 
That our greater spotted eagle spends the winter there only adds to the nature conservation values of the area since this species is seen in Spain only a few times in a year.
Last year Tõnn...

From data that arrived yesterday we can be somewhat more precise about Tõnn’s whereabouts in the previous story about his travels: the night of September 24 he spent 3,5 km north of Geneva’s airport, in France (180 m from the Swiss border). The day before that there was however a confirmed location in Switzerland too, and probably he crossed the not very evident border between the countries a few more times ... But in the morning of September 24, Tõnn set a south-westerly course and without making any longer pauses during daylight time he reached the Spanish border in two days.

On September 19 osprey Erika reached her usual wintering area, the eastern part of Sudan near the Ethiopian border.
 
 
After the tiring crossing of the Mediterranean on September 7, our osprey stopped for some rest at the edge of the Nile delta; her satellite transmitter sent...
