Come fly with me
In this update, we have some sad but exciting news. Much like a particularly short season of your favourite T.V. show, all good things must come to an end. It seems the chicks finally realised winter is coming, and as of Friday 1st of September have left Foulshaw Moss to begin their 2000+ mile journey back to the west coast of Africa. The last time we saw the chicks, they were still growing strong, so we shouldn’t have to worry too much about them on their journey.
We also have an update on Blue 35 too! Last week she was spotted feeding in the north of Spain where this fantastic footage was captured.
This is doubly special for us at CWT, because now we have the first of potentially many points which will one day be used to map Blue 35’s route to Africa, and if we are very lucky we might find out exactly where she overwinters. .
