The map is published on the Looduskalender main page
http://www.looduskalender.ee/en/node/
Scroll down to Diaries and Links on the left of that page.

There will be a translation in English of an article by Urmas just posted.

On the top right of the map page, click on the ? for Help topic in how to use the map. It is interactive and we can choose to see the flight of one or many of the birds recorded on it.

It looks like there will be another data transmission on the 9th.
Maybe he found a fish farm to raid!

No idea what happened, but on today's map all the storks moved except Toomas. Even "Lembit-the-loser". :cry:

Hey, Toomas, Eilat is a nice place indeed and the weather is so fine there but the camera is waiting for you! :laugh:

Urmas says that sometimes there are strong winds from the North and migrating birds have to wait. There will be another data transmission today!

Will this huge dust-storm affect the storks or LSE's in any way ?

A good question, Macdoum. There have not been any reports in UK news about the effect on birds.

The cloud is too high to affect birds.

Maybe Urmas or Renno know more?

Adding new information from BBC this morning - three layers of ash have been found below 10,000 feet or 3,048 metres.

Hi!

yes, the ash-cloud is too high for affecting migrating birds. This is my personal opinion and dosnĀ“t base on any study :rolleyes:

Toomas is moving slowly, but Lembit has problems, he did not send any signals within a fortnight. He may be dead already. How old he was, on the photos he seemed to be a aged stork and he also was the last a year ago.

Raivo and Leida are at home soon, but isn`t it strange that 3 of 9 storks are lost?

I think the real problem is that it is not strange at all, only sad. Hopefully Jordan will do more to stop poaching and that might help a little.
