Sherwood's position on
Sherwood settled - for now- 11 Feb 2019
We are receiving lots of locations from Sherwood's tag that show him settled in the area of rainforest to the south of Minkebe National Park, Gabon.
Sherwood further north- 29 Jan 2019
During the last week Sherwood has moved north and east within Gabon and is currently just to the south of Minkebe National Park, an area of dense rainforest. This latest flight has seen him cover 204km (127 miles).
Sherwood still moving north- 18 Jan 2019
During the last few days Sherwood's tag shows that he has moved another 115km (71 miles) further north. He is now on the northern edge of the Lope National Park, Gabon, in an area of fairly dense forest.
Sherwood continues north- 07 Jan 2019
During the last few days we have recieved locations from Sherwood's tag that shows he didn't stay on the southern border of Gabon for very long. In the early hours of 5 January his tag showed that he had travelled 286km (178 miles) north and west and was in central Gabon just to the south of Fougamou and close to the Ngounie River. Around breakfast on 7 January we recieved a series of low quality locations from his tag that show he hasn't hung around and has flown a further 134km (83 miles) north. This won't show on his map until we receive higher quality locations. This movement has seen him fly 420km (260 miles). Sherwood is on his way back.
Sherwood moving north- 03 Jan 2019
During the early evening of New Year's eve Sherwood was flying north. He is now less than 2km (just over a mile) from the southern border of Gabon and in the northeast corner of the Conkouati Reserve. Could this 70km (44 miles) movement be the first leg of his long journey back to Sherwood Forest, Nottinghamshire? The journey back to Sherwood Forest via West Africa is 8,000km (5,000 miles) as the Cuckoo flies.
