Osprey make long migrations from Scotland to Africa
Two young birds of prey being tracked on their migration from the Highlands have reached Africa.
Ospreys Rothes and Mallachie were raised at RSPB Scotland's Loch Garten reserve near Aviemore.
Rothes has been flying around the Bijagos islands off Guinea-Bissau, while Mallachie has made it to Algeria.
The female birds were fitted with satellite tags. They are two of three chicks raised by parent birds EJ and Odin.
Last year's young were also tagged but died during migration.
Nethy was thought to have died earlier this year after migrating to Africa.
Her brother Deshar died last October after making a "navigational error" and missing landfall in the Azores.
