Where today?

Since the last post about UV he has been a bit of a gadabout. He has visited places such as an irrigation canal and the surrounding land some 11 km east of the centre of his main wintering area.

He has flown at elevations of over 500m ASL at times – as he did when heading back to the coast from the canal area. On several sorties south around the Langue de Barbarie National Park he has interspersed high and low flying as he did in this typical long flight.

The flight in the image below around the breach that separates the two parts of the Langue de Barbarie is quite typical of others that last around an hour.

UV has also perched in the area around Lac Guembeul and scrub nearer the coast. The last image shows the extent of his range over the last couple of weeks.
