Flyback’s flown 500 miles….

and then he's flown 500 more

Flyback has been zooming his way back to us over the last few days and has flown nearly 1000 miles since leaving Morocco on Sunday.  We last updated you when he was flying towards Huelva in Spain.  He headed inland after reaching Huelva and crossed into Portugal at about 1500 on Monday the 9th.  He continued north before landing on an island on the Portuguese-Spanish border at 18.55.  What has amazed us is this is the same little island Gary spent time on when he was crossing west to east on his migration.  Flyback then went south back into Spain at 1956 and spent the night resting before flying back to the wee island at 0606 on Tuesday morning where he spent the day resting and foraging until 1920 that night. He then crossed back into Spain and remained there until 0530 on Wednesday morning.  Since then he has flown north crossing over the border three times before arriving on the sea at Ria de Vigo on the Spanish coast at 2342 on Wednesday night.  He left there this morning and our last update at 0847 saw him still flying north over Caldas de Reis.  He is now on day five of his migration and is going strong.
