Ten Thousand Fixes



Yup! TEN THOUSAND is the number of GPS fixes we have obtained from Wallu's PTT, which, as of today, has been tracking this very sedentary adult male wedgie for 700 consecutive days. The last time we checked in with Wallu we saw how he had not moved from his home range since the beginning of this tracking study. Not much has changed, and as you can see from the above 3D image, we have a very concentrated cluster of points clearly defining 'home'. As part of the process of publishing this preliminary research, I am now starting to look at this data in finer detail to analyse the points and look for patterns in daily behaviour, determine favourite roost sites, and search for other patterns in this eagle's behaviour. Watch this space for news of upcoming publications.
