搭順風車的高鶚格倫怎麼了?

丹奇女士說,她和她的 "保護無國界 "團隊--目前正在進行 "高鶚飛行 "探險--正饒有興趣地跟蹤他的進展。

"她說:"雖然我們目前在加納的考察已接近尾聲,但我們一直在密切關注格倫的進展,因為它是特威德谷鶚項目的三隻少年中的最後一隻。

"在它在比斯開灣的集裝箱船上逃亡之後,我們對它似乎在西班牙快樂地探索的事實相當着迷,而且似乎沒有像它的大多數同類那樣有進一步南遷的傾向。"

特威德谷鶚項目蘇格蘭林業和土地部的戴安-貝內特說,格倫在搭上西班牙西北部的Rio Anllóns定居,但似乎沒有進一步南下的意願。

"她說:"9月間,它沿着那裡的整個河流系統進行了廣泛的探索,看來它正在茁壯成長。

"它現在已經熟悉了這個地區,它一直在尋找合適的捕魚和栖息地,整個月來一切似乎都很順利。

"格倫有可能在冬季留在西班牙,但這是不正常的--在大多數鳥類會進一步向南飛。"

她說,它似乎 "滿足於 "留在原地,但顯然是去執行偵察任務。

她說:"在過去的10天裡,格倫離開了這個地區,並沿着海岸線進行了一次漫長的熟悉之旅,然後再次返回北部的Rio Anllóns"。

"如果隨着冬季的到來,西班牙北部Anllóns的天氣變得更加不利,那麼格倫現在對他可以去的地方有了一些了解,進一步向南,這是件好事。


Ms Dench said she and her Conservation Without Borders team - which is currently on its Flight of the Osprey Expedition - was tracking his progress with interest.

"Although we are currently nearing the end of our expedition in Ghana following the migration route of ospreys, we have been keeping a close eye on Glen's progress as he is the last of three juveniles from the Tweed Valley Osprey project," she said.

"After his escapades on container ships in the Bay of Biscay we are quite fascinated by the fact that he seems to be happily exploring in Spain and appears to have no inclination to migrate further south like most of his kind."

Diane Bennett of Forestry and Land Scotland, Tweed Valley Osprey Project, said Glen had settled in Rio Anllóns in northwest Spain after he hitched a ride but seemed to have no desire to go further south.

"During September he had extensively explored along the whole of the river system there and it seems that he is thriving," she said.

"He is now familiar with the area, he has been finding suitable fishing and roosting areas and all seems to have been going well for the whole month.

"It is possible that Glen may remain in Spain during the winter months but it's out of the normal - in that most birds would head further south."

She said he appeared to be "content to stay" where he was but had gone on an apparent scouting mission.

"In the past 10 days Glen left the area and has made a long familiarisation trip all the way along the coast and down to Portugal before returning north to the Rio Anllóns again," she said.

"If the weather becomes more adverse in northern Spain at Anllóns as winter progresses, then Glen now has some knowledge of where he can go, further south and this is a good thing.
