News just in, 7H crossed from SW Portugal to Morocco yesterday, flying 430 km over the Atlantic Ocean in around 12 hours.
She roosted in scrub on 20 September, having flown to the Portuguese equivalent of Land’s End then back inland a short way.
On 21 September she may have fished in the sea before setting off to Africa; by 08.49 she was about 10 km off the Portuguese coast. She flew steadily at about 35 kph until 11.45 when she increased her pace, moving at 45-55 kph for much of the rest of her flight, with occasional short slower spells. Landfall must have been about 21.00 because at 21.02 she was stationary just inland, near the Golf Course at Bouznika, south of Rabat. She roosted until this morning when she appeared to fish at sea before heading on.
Well done, 7H, stay strong.
