Einion - Einion's in Africa

Posted: Tuesday 13th September 2011 by Emyr MWT

Early on the morning of September 6th, Einion wasted no time and continued his migration south. Any temptations of the Costa del Sol were wasted on him as he flew straight passed Malaga, Torremolinos and Marbella in an westerly direction. By 14.00 he had passed Gibraltar and was leaving Spanish air space heading south west.

After a four hour Atlantic ocean crossing Einion found land again and roosted just north of Rabat in Morocco. He left the Dyfi the previous Wednesday and by the following Tuesday, less than a week, he was in Africa. What a bird!
