Assamo has, more or less, continued its pattern of movement seen in late January. Currently Assa Gaila seems to be a focus, but Assamo makes forays out toward Tadjoura and Obock, and on 15 February he headed directly toward the Bab el Mandeb Strait (only to return to Assa Gaila on the 16th). Egyptian vulture migration for those birds breeding in Eurasia is probably starting, so if Assamo is going to make a move, he should do so soon, and the route he would take is over the Bab el Mandeb Strait. However, maybe he is an African bird and will settle down as a breeder. Wait and see.
