Adult started to move!

If August was uneventful for both immature and adult eagles, the month of September turned out to be an action-packed time for the adult. On 13 September it started to move west at a leisurely pace, spent 3 days on the Lysyanskogo Peninsula, and 2 days on Ulbeya river, before arriving to the Okhota river. Where it stayed at the same spot as our immature eagle! They meet up again. Previously they met in November 2009, at the Belaya Gora village, in Primorye.

What is unusual is that this autumn the adult, which was not breeding this summer, started to migrate almost 1 month earlier than in the previous year (when it was presumably breeding). Compare: 12 October in 2009 and 13 September 2010.
