Luna stopped overnight in the wooded valley beside the coast near to Lythe on 20 August, and the next day moved on again, continuing her way south to Lincolnshire. She flew 151 km, and stopped overnight near to Ulceby Cross, close to the A1104 road, in a woodland belt.
On 21 August Luna left her latest roost and travelled a further 100km. She reached Fenton in Cambridgeshire where she spent the night in a tree near to the roundabout between the A141 and the B1040.
By 6.30 am on 22 August she was on the move again, heading to St. Ives. She proceeded south east, crossing the Cambridgeshire countryside, down to Southend on Sea. At 4pm she crossed the Thames estuary and reached the Isle of Grain. She stopped beside the power station at Wallend on the Isle of Grain at 4pm on 22 August, having flown another 133 km of her first migration journey.
So far so good, and fingers crossed, she will be likely to leave the UK this weekend.
There has not been any news of Buzz, but it is likely that he has started his journey. Although Hope’s tracker is not giving any information out, she was seen on the nest yesterday morning. SS was also there the day before, bringing a fish for her. Her solar-powered tracker is likely not getting charged up with enough sunlight, especially if she is just hanging around at the nest site .
More news as we get it!
