My conspiracy theory is: Waba is following the forum and thought "I'll wait until they proclaim their winter break, and then I'll crash the party!". :mrgreen:

Hi everyone! :hi:

Great news, Bea! :thumbs:

It seems that, while we won't get near-daily updates from Waba this year, s/he will sometimes let us know where s/he is. That would be great.

Hi everyone :hi:

Waba sent new data! :thumbs:

WABA, November 29th

▶︎ TRACKER MAP
WABA 26.11 - 29.11
From 26.11 at 16:07 UTC until 29.11 at 16:08 UTC

https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid= ... sp=sharing

Distance: 27.0 km in 3 days
Battery: 90%


Waba is still near Munirah and Al Mafaza in the state Al Qadarif in Sudan

(Edited)
Al Qadarif (Arabic: القضارف Al Qaḍārif), also spelt Gedaref or Gadarif, is one of the 18 wilayat or states of Sudan. It has an area of 75,263 km2 and an estimated population of approximately 1,400,000 (2000). Al Qadarif is the capital of the state; other towns include Doka and Gallabat. It includes the disputed Al Fushqa District. …
The Agricultural projects in this region primarily depend on rain-fed irrigation and rainfall. Notable projects encompass Um Settat, sesame cultivation, Alvhqh, Labadi, and various others. The Rahad Agricultural Project utilizes irrigation from the Rahad River and the blue Nile River for both agricultural and industrial purposes.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al_Qadarif_State

Waba is in an (irrigated) agricultural area, east of the meandering river Nahr El Rahad.
Rahad River is a tributary of the Blue Nile, rising in the Ethiopian highlands, west of Lake Tana. It flows more than 480 km northwest into the eastern part of Sudan to join the Blue Nile above Wad Madani. Although waterless during the dry season, it has a large flow during the flood season (June–September).

This must be an interesting place. 8-)

Hello and thank you Francesca for keeping Waba under constant control. Seemingly the present area is well worth staying in for Waba and presumably quite a few other storks.
