A message received by BTO at 03:13 yesterday morning shows Martin has moved from Central African Republic in to Congo, joining the other four Cuckoos. He has moved 368km (228 miles) south of his previous position and is now close to Lyster and Clement. For the first time since they left East Anglia all five cuckoos are once again in the same country.
Messages received from the other four Cuckoos show that there have been no other significant movements. You can follow the progress of each Cuckoo on the BTO Cuckoo blogs.
An overview of the project, presented by Phil Atkinson at the recent BTO annual conference, can be viewed below:
