There had been no data update on 7H since early on 9 September until today; the reason is now clear, she was having a flight of nearly 39 hours non stop over the Bay of Biscay. How incredible, and what a strong juvenile she must be. EDIT: Actually not under her own steam all the way , after turning to the north and flying around a bit, she must have hitched a lift on a cargo ship heading NE; she possibly only realised she wasn’t on another island when it got light! So deduct 12 hours.
She headed off from the Scillies at 06.55 on 10 September where she had been since just before 15.00 on 9 September. (At the moment there is no data covering her journey there from Wales.)
She headed south, on track for a crossing to the NW of Spain. A very long trip in itself for a juvenile on her fourth day of migration. But at 17.00 she turned round when virtually half way to Spain. EDIT: She flew around mainly moving east or north and then must have boarded a ship; by dawn she had actually passed the NW coast (SW England next stop!) she abandoned ship and headed south at just before 06.00 on 11 September. An interesting overnight roost!
She eventually made landfall about 35 km west of Aviles at 21.40. Actually, she was on offshore rocks and she stayed on them all night. She had still been flying at 37 kph or more before landing..
There will be more on her stay in the Scillies and on what she did next in another post. For now, just marvel at this journey of over 1200 km. With 250 km of that on a ship, so still nearly 1000 km, albeit not at one go. With thanks to Tiger and Paul especially for getting a blogger on the right track!
