Where was He: KG09 Archives 2018


January 10: After a few weeks of inactivity from KG09’s GPS tracking unit, it appears the transmitter is functioning normally again. He spent the past few weeks in familiar territory, and can be seen at his last-known position near the town of Stevensville, Virginia.   

January 18: KG09 has been exploring an area a little further south in comparison to where he’s been seen during the past few weeks. After crossing the York River, KG09 now appears to be within the boundaries of York River State Park. This area is in close proximity to Interstate 64 and several urban areas, including the city of Williamsburg, Virginia.

January 25: After traversing the York River, KG09 is back in familiar territory. He flew roughly 19 miles from the center of Gloucester County to his most-recently known location at the Dragonville landfill.

February 8: Throughout the past week KG09 flew a surprisingly far distance in a nearly circular pattern – a total of about 75 miles. His most-recently known location appears to be at the Dragonville landfill.   

February 16: KG09 flew about 40 miles from Gloucester County to Essex County during the past week. His last known location appears to be directly over a small creek surrounded by rural forests.

March 1: Starting near the northern portion of the Rappahannock River, KG09 can be seen flying about 15 miles throughout Richmond County before heading south and crossing the river into Essex County. Another 15 miles south brought him to his most-recent location near King and Queen Courthouse. 

March 12: Remaining inland for most of the past week, KG09 flew about 25 miles northwest towards Tappahannock – the oldest town in Essex County, Virginia – before returning to his most-recently known location at the Dragonville landfill.
