Carlton II's movements
08 May 2019 - Carlton II makes it home
Carlton II completed his return migration in the last few days, covering the 1,180 Km (733 miles) from northern Spain to Suffolk Wildlife Trust's Carlton Marshes Nature Reserve near Lowestoft.
25 Apr 2019 - Carlton II in Extremadura
The latest updates from Carlton II's tag received at 08:00 this morning show that he has progressed north into west central Spain. He is now in Extremadura, near the small town of Torremenga.
23 Apr 2019 - Carlton II is on his way
Over the Easter weekend we received a series of locations showing Carlton II heading across the desert and by early evening on 20 April he had made it to southern Morocco. He didn't hang around though as by the evening of 22 April he was in southern Spain, just to the north of Marbella. During this movement he has flown 3,283km (2,040 miles).
11 Apr 2019 - Carlton is in Sierra Leone
Having received some better quality locations from Carlton II's tag we can confirm that he is in Sierra Leone. However he has moved a little further east and closer to the border with Liberia. He is currently in the northeastern part of the Gola East Forest Reserve in fairly dense forest.
04 Apr 2019 - Carlton II has moved
We have received a couple of poor locations from Carlton II's tag that suggest he is in Sierra Leone, not far from the border with Liberia. We will have to wait for higher quality locations to confirm this but if this is the case he is in the Tiwai Island Wildlife Sanctuary on the banks of the River Moa. This would be an interesting movement 314km (195 miles) southwest of his last location in Guinea. We will have to wait and see what unfolds over the next week.
