The Markov evolution is studied of an infinite age-structured population of migrants arriving in and departing from a continuous habitat $X \subseteq\mathds{R}^d$ – at random and independently of each other. Each population member is characterized by its age $a\geq 0$ (time of presence in the population) and location $x\in X$. The population states are probability measures on the space of the corresponding marked configurations. The result of the paper is constructing the evolution $\mu_0 \to \mu_t$ of such states by solving a standard Fokker-Planck equation for this models. We also found a stationary state $\mu$ existing if the emigration rate is separated away from zero. It is then shown that $\mu_t$ weakly converges to $\mu$ as $t\to +\infty$.
