Move continues

The adult eagle (82163) has reached Kunashir Island. Today's e-mail has brought the last bit of the GPS data for the past days, so I was able to construct the GPS track. From Sakhalin Island the eagle went to Hokkaido, Japan, and then to Kunashir, and subsequently to Iturup Island. Interestingly the bird liked the same spots on the coastline of Hokkaido as it used last autumn migration. Although the fixes last year were earlier than this year.
Meanwhile the youngster (62629) moved to Sakhalin Island, and now remains in the Tymn River valley. I feel that it will move south very quickly.
