VY is in Northern Senegal

After almost a week of no data it was a huge relief to receive a very partial download of data tonight. VY, unlike Loch of the Lowes FR4 – who roosted only a few km from VY on 8 September – must have taken the inland route south thereafter. She has travelled almost exactly 2000 km since then.

Just over half an hour ago data showed VY was roosting in the far north of Senegal, about 230 km from her 2014 brother UV. There will be backfilling of data so watch out for more news!
