Two different released reintroduction individuals from the western Pyrenees - one ('Brínzola') went north from Spain to Norway, the other ('Cid') went south from Spain to Mauretania - so not quite so extremely odd

Ta Nutty - and I lived in Spain for 13 years and speak fluently - I was too quick off the mark

All the same - remarkable dispersions!

I wonder if anybody ticked it up north?

I saw a satellite track of my ne that did a complete circle of Spain, Pyrenees and Portugal - almost following coast...

Norway includes a good chunk of coast so even more impressive...

Reminds me of the reintroduced Lammergeiers that end up in Holland etc.
