All tagged eagles have now started migration

by M. McGrady, B.-U. Meyburg, F. Al Lamki, and A. Spalton

182712 has turned up after being out of contact for almost a month; it was last heard just west of Salalah on 9 March.  During that time it made its way west through Yemen, making a few stops along the way.  It has now started to head north, and is currently east of Sanaa. 182 has also finally made its move north, after spending a long time at the rubbish dump near Taizz, Yemen (See 29 March blog post).  All together three of the eagles we fitted with transmitters have taken this westerly route through Yemen on their migration north.  It will be interesting to see what happens in autumn, but in the meantime we can see what they do over summer.
