Assamo still in Djibouti.

Since the last post Assamo has been moving around northern Djibouti much as he has for the past few months (see earlier posts).  Most locations over the past three weeks have been in and around Assa Gaila.  We did think that he may start migrating because from 6-8 March he moved close to where he would likely embark if he were to head north.   During early March Egyptian vulture migration across the Bab el Mandeb Strait is heavy.  However, during 9-10 March Assamo returned to the area around Assa Gaila.  So, at this very moment Assamo is showing neither signs of breeding nor migration.  The migration period has some time to run, so he may yet head north.
Movements by Assamo during 28 Feb - 10 March 2014.
