Red 8T left the roost area at 0630hrs and then stopped for several hours in irrigated land where presumably fished. At 1100hrs was flying NNE at 35km/hr and at 1230hrs crossed the River Senegal into Mauritania. Then headed NE towards the desert and at 1500hrs was flying at 48km/hr at 694 metres altitude. After 1800hrs settled to roost overnight in the desert after a flight of 278 km.
