Two chicks tagged with satellite trackers in 2015. In 21015, one fly 7352km and the other 6812km. Interestingly, the tracked ospreys don’t always take the same route, some travel along the west coast of Britain, another down the east coast and one more centrally.

The osprey tracked here travelled to Africa rather than stopping Spain like the Scottish birds.

Not all Osprey migrate, some stay within their region but may move locally during breeding season.
