Assamo's movements 27 March - 5 April 2013
Assamo makes a move south
Between 27 March and 3 April Assamo behaved very much as he/she has done since capture, moving from place to place, mostly to the north of Tadjoura. On 1 April it moved to its closest location to Ras Siyyan (so far) and the Bab el Mandeb Straits. On 3 April it broke from its previous behavior and headed to the south of Djibouti and Ethiopia, traveling over land and not flying over the Gulf of Tadjoura. During one leg of this journey Assamo was moving an average of about 16 km/hr. On the 3rd and 4th of April Assamo was in Ethiopia near Dewele, and on 4-5 moved back into Djibouti. The last location on 5 April had Assamo in the town of Ali Sabieh.. I have posted something a bit different on the Vulture Chronicles blog, so have a look there, too. It seems like Assamo is really not a migrant...this year at least.
