Carlton II alive and well - 10 Dec 2018
Carlton II seems settled in the area of rainforest he has been in for just over a month now. He might move further south, or equally he could remain in this location for the rest of his winter stopover, only time will tell.
Carlton II still in Gabon - 19 Nov 2018
Since arriving in Gabon Carlton II seems settled in the area of rainforest he arrived in. We have received lots of locations from his tag that show he is moving very short distances within the forest. It is currently around 30C with 50% humidity at his location.
Carlton II in Gabon - 07 Nov 2018
On 4 November we received locations that showed Carlton had headed east and south out of Niger, passing through Nigeria, Cameroon and Equatorial Guinea on his way to Gabon. He has flown over 1,600km (1,000 miles) to reach his current location. He is in an area of dense forest to the south of Booue and the Ogooue River.
Carlton II heading east - 18 Oct 2018
During the last week or so Carlton II has begun to move east, first to just over the border and into Niger and then a little further into Niger. He is currently in the Dagida Game Reserve, 30km (19 miles) from the border with Benin.
Carlton II still out west - 27 Sep 2018
Carlton II is still in Burkina Faso but did have a short foray into Ivory Coast. Having reached Benin further to the east he has now moved back west 586km (364 miles). These westerly movements may be in response to poor weather making feeding difficult and the search for better feeding.
