Almost there

30(05) has travelled a further 341 miles since we last caught up with her on the evening of September 4th. On September 5th she crossed into Mauritania and spent some time near the coast at Banc D’arguin National Park in the late afternoon/evening.

We know this is a regular fishing spot for her – you may remember she stopped here on her spring migration earlier this year. The flight route from the UK to Gambia goes straight over Banc D’arguin National Park and back in March we shared this photo John Wright captured from the plane last year.

With another 200 or so miles to go, we expect with our next update 30 will have arrived at her destination!
