Migration Update Sunday 30th September: Blue YD through the desert & Blue 44 still enjoying the french cuisine

Blue YD has made it safely through the desert! He was roosting on the Sengal River last night amd was right on the Mauritania/ Senegal border so perhaps he’s waiting to go through passport control! He never ceases to amaze us by finding all sorts of water sources on his travels. He stopped at a couple of dams including Barrage de Tertouguel and we assume he found fish there to keep him going. If he stays on his current direction he’ll reach the Reserve de Faune de Ferlo Nord in Senegalsoon, we’ll know more on Tuesday. Ceylan, the Dyfi chick, is just along the river near Rosso so perhaps their paths will cross.

Blue 44 is still loafing around in the South of France, enjoying the fishing and perhaps feeling very much at home. I’ve been comparing his flying and roosting patterns both here and in France, it all looks very familiar…
