Is UV thinking about starting his second Spring migration? Maybe!

Late data yesterday revealed UV could have started his second Spring migration at about 10.50 UTC. Last year he headed SE so it was a relief to see his track going NE. Mostly.

UV flew at a maximum recorded altitude of 1289m ASL but mainly much lower. He didn’t pause until 14.54 but he’d only covered 112 km by 19.18 via a mix of high flying and some lower meandering.

Today’s email has just arrived and UV had a relaxed start to the day. The temperature is hotter inland than at the coast: 39ºC today and no cooling seas breezes, which may account for an unusually slow beginning to migration. If this is what UV’s journey is!

He’s been exploring an area with quite intensive rice and sugar cane growing.

Tomorrow he may be back at the coast, who knows with UV!
