On the evening of 22 June, we received one transmission showing that Ryder was just west of Holne. The next signal, early in the morning of 25 June shows he had arrived on the coast of Brittany and Lower Normandy, about 30km (19 miles) east of Saint-Malo and 50km (30 miles) north of Rennes, after completing a distance of 270km (169 miles) including crossing the English Channel at one of its widest points.
Trapped and tagged at Holne very early on the morning of 16 May, Ryder has subsequently spent most of his time in the area within 2km (1.25 miles) to the south and east of Venford Reservoir. Both Dart and Ryder were still in the area close to where they were tagged on 11 June.
