Aigan off on a journey south

Aigan left her wintering site in Mauritania about midday on 11th December and flew 225 kms south to roost overnight just SW of Diourbel. Next morning she flew to the Sine Saloum National Park and would have seen many ospreys wintering there, including to a young osprey aggressive adults. She passed over the Gambia in the early afternoon and by 1800hrs was on the north bank of the River Casamanche, where she roosted. On 13th and 14th she wandered in southern Senegal reaching the Atlantic coast at Varela National Park before heading north and spending time in the mangrove swamps south of the Casamanche River in Senegal.
