First, looking back to a couple of aspects of UV’s “Tour of Africa” in which he travelled several hundred km further than the whole migration journey back to the UK of Rutland Osprey Project’s 30(05) who overwinters not far south of the Langue de Barbarie.
Paul has created a ‘day-by-day’ animation of UV’s African leg of his migration which brings home his powers of endurance crossing desert and mountains.
Paul also wrote a piece for a FaceBook Osprey Group about UV’s sea crossing. It is reproduced here. Circle of Uncertainty
