Arrives in Senegal

Fearna flew 264 kms on 12th November and by 1600GMT she had reached the Senegal River. Fearna then seetled in an area of smaller channels south of the main river in Senegal, SE of Podor. After a rather worrying and long drawn out migration she has finally reached the West African wintering grounds.  She is now 120 kms NE of Fiddich and 160 km east of Aigan.  It’s encouraging that 3 of the 4 young we tagged in the summer are in West Africa, and the fourth, Stan, made the big migration to the same longtitude but way to the west in the Cape Verdes and was then sadly lost.
