A bit more on VY’s travel yesterday

The data on VY arrived late afternoon yesterday. This morning it was early and she hadn’t gone far from her overnight stop, but we now have her full day’s travel for 2 September.

She started the day at her roost in these trees in a field a few km south of Honfleur.

It doesn’t look much like Kielder Forest! We left her yesterday flying towards Chinon and between the Loire and Vienne rivers. She didn’t stop for the night in that area but carried on until just after 17.00 UTC.

She flew 325 km in the day. Her roost looks quite attractive!

Today she set off in a SW direction and if she maintained that course then she would have reached the Atlantic coast during the morning.
