Finnish Satellite Osprey "Jukka"
* In the autumn of 2009 started a new satellite tracking project between the Finnish Musem of Natural History, the Finnish Osprey Foundation and UPM. The project monitors the life of a male osprey "Jukka" with a GPS-Argos satellite transmitter. The scientific supervisor of the project is professor Pertti Saurola.
* Jukka was equipped with the satellite transmitter in July 2009.
* Jukka started his autumn migration on 24th September 2009 and 4th November 2009 Jukka has reached his wintering location at the Lagdo reservoir.
* Jukka's spring migration 2010 has started!

14th April 2010 (late afternoon) Jukka the Osprey reached the Finnish border and 20 hours later he arrived on his nesting area .
The autumn migration 2009 lasted 33 days (September 24 to October 26)
and the spring migration 2010 lasted only 24 days (March 23, to April 15)
During the spring migration Jukka flew over 6800 km, average 280 km per day
Let's hope that Jukka gets now some fish - though there are still ice on lakes.
Life is too short to be taken seriously.
