So much more than a red dot

A detailed picture of activity can be developed from the data provided by GSM/GPS trackers. Fascinating and valuable though that is, to see the subject – in this case UV  – is a greater thrill.

A recent trip to the Langue de Barbarie area of Northern Senegal gave the opportunity to learn what changes to the area have occurred in the last year and to try and find UV.

Did we succeed? Here’s some proof!

There’ll be more about the area and UV’s activity over the next few days.

Much is owed to chief UV spotter Pip and chief photographer Vic who carried heavy photographic kit over beach and scrub. Some great images are the result, heartfelt thanks to both.
