Well priority Nr1 is finding food, voles, looks bad this year up in the north, maybe that's why he moves around so fast
No food=no breeding

Looks like a subadult from what I know, white tips on the upside greater coverts, 5 cy?, not a young eagle anyway.
Yellow ring on the left leg is Slovakia as what people say, can't find it in http://www.cr-birding.be/

Yeah, Hah! :laugh: seems he hesitated at the Russian border though

Interesting thing is that another GSE was reported in artportalen.se on Saturday 0526,
seen close flying by between Arvidsjaur and Malå, only 200km SW of the latest satellite position, no hint on age tho

Seems he checked out the old summerlands at Storsjön but then quickly turned north.
Weather is bad, 6°C and maybe snow tomorrow, rain anyway.

Poor newborn bird chicks in this weather, many will die :-(

Edit 3/6: found a dead Common Swift lying on the balcony floor this morning. Third day with rain and 4-7°C. Full speed on the bird feeder.

Wow :headroll:

Tõnn was seen on Monday, yesterday and this morning at the same spot 8 km NE Åsele, that's around 50 km SE birdmap position 2.6:

Monday 4.6: http://www.artportalen.se/birds/obs_inf ... d=25970914
"tönn with transmitter"

Tuesday 5.6 http://www.artportalen.se/birds/obs_inf ... d=25971002
"tönn, took shelter in the forest at hail and rain shower, seen latest around 19:30"

Today 6.6 four reports so far, first one: http://www.artportalen.se/birds/obs_inf ... d=25974338
"Tönn showing up real nice! Flying around by the bog and lands now and then on the ground. Fourth time I've seen Tönn"

That last reporter usually have a camera, we'll see if he uploads some pictures today or even posts here, come on now Johan :peek: :mrgreen:

(Edited for wrong link and translation of comments)

Edit again: finally found a way to link all GSE reports :rolleyes: http://www.artportalen.se/birds/uttag_o ... myear=2012 (most of them are just refering to birdmap)

Oh
Seems he was just following the Norwegian coastline to look for greener pastures on a new continent to the west over the Atlantic :rolleyes:
Vikings did that but they had boats filled with supplies..

Stay safe Tõnn and hope not many bongers or photographers disturb you!

Two years ago we thought that Oulu is too far in the North for him but now he flew even farther to the North than at that time. What is the next stop, Nordkap? :rotf:

The birdmap today says Tõnn in south into Sweden. Seems he is near the spot/s where he spent last Summer :puzzled:

Oh, some 500 km NE, but just a day trip for an eagle :D
Seems he spent several days at Muonio river banks between Sweden and Finland and me thought that would be a nice summer place, but no no, keep on rolling :laugh: :rolleyes:
