Wilfrid's movements

12 Jul 2024 - Wilfrid wends his way to wine region

After a couple of days around the Troyes area, Wilfrid flew approximately 500 km (310 miles) south toward Bordeaux, where he is currently in an area of mixed woodland and farmland just south of the Dordogne River.

08 Jul 2024 - Wilfred wings it from Worlingham

Wilfred, tagged at Worlingham Marshes in Suffolk on 3 June 2024, has now left the UK and is heading determinedly south.

His route has taken him on a 165 km (102 miles) flight across open water, from the Suffolk coast to Dunkirk. From here he has carried on, covering a further 340 km (311 miles) to the outskirts of Troyes, a town in the Grand Est region.
