Although this looks like Bega is avoiding the water we know she has been flying and fishing over the Lake – it’s just that the signals have coincided with her time on land. The orange lines merely join the dots up and don’t represent her actual flight pattern. Interestingly it does show that she seems to have explored the first nesting site on the west side of the Lake where it all started in 2001.
The current nest site is also being used still with Dad regularly bringing fish back for her to eat. There has been no sign of KL for a few days now so we must assume that she has started her long journey back to Africa leaving Dad to hold the baby.
