Black 6 in Devon, 06/11/11
This year’s released birds have been out for 8 weeks now, and most are starting to roam more widely around their original release sites. One has been rather more adventurous! Black 6 was last seen by project staff on the day of her release. She spent a couple of weeks on a neighbouring farm, but then went off the radar. On dawn of 5th November, a great bustard was seen flying south from Portland Bill in Dorset, and then the following lunchtime we received a report of Black 6 in a field at South Huish, near Kingsbridge in Devon. She flew north an hour later, and we’re hoping that more sightings in the near future will help us track her journey.
