NORTHBOUND!!!



Check out THIS! Kuyurnpa has moved an incredible distance, travelling just over ONE THOUSAND KILOMETRES in only the last 3 days! Her roost tonight is located 640km (as the eagle flies) from her natal nest. This is the longest distance ever recorded for the species in such a short time... previous records taken months apart showed the record distance from a banding site to a recovery site (where a juvenile has been resighted months later) to be about 800km. You can really get a sense of the distance moved by looking at Kuyurnpa's flight on an Australian scale.

More tracking news soon!
