Trent's movements

14 Sep 2023 - Trent pushes east into Nigeria

Over the last few days Trent has flown 1,340 km (832 miles) east, taking him from his original position in Burkina Faso via Togo and Benin into Nigeria. He is now in central Nigeria, approximately 105 km (65 miles) east of the capital city of Abuja. 

01 Sep 2023 - Trent moves into Burkina Faso

Since our last update Trent has flown 162 km (100 miles) east, taking him out of Mali and into Burkina Faso. He is now in western Burkina Faso, approximately 100 km (64 miles) north west of the city of Bobo-Dioulasso.

29 Aug 2023 - Trent moves into South Mali

Over the last few days Trent has flown 460 km (286 miles) south east in Mali. He is close to the Bagoe River, 58 km (36 miles) south east of the town of Diolila in the Koulikoro Region of south-western Mali. 

18 Aug 2023 - Trent is moving east

Since our last update Trent has been moving steadily east along the border between southern Mauritania and south western Mali.

He has so far flown 128 km (80 miles) east from his last location and is now 27 km (18 miles) west of the town of Niorro du Sahel in the Kayes region of western Mali.  

17 Aug 2023 - Trent moves into Mali

Trent has left Senegal and flown 320 km (199 miles) north-east into Mali. He is now approximately 22 km (14 miles) north-west of the town of Diongaga in the Kayes Region of south western Mali, just south of the border with Mauritania.

This area has seen some heavy rain over the last couple of days which should help ensure a good supply of invertebrate food for Trent.
