Five Welsh Cuckoos tagged

The BTO Tracking Team have been busy in Wales this week and, as of yesterday morning, have now tagged five Welsh males! So that's all the Scottish and Welsh males tagged as well as two English males from Norfolk to compliment Chris and Lyster.  These new Cuckoos will be available for sponsorship sometime in the next few weeks.

Chris and Lyster haven't moved far from their previous locations around Mildenhall and the Broads respectively and are presumably making the best of the breeding season while it lasts. Last year Clement, the first Cuckoo to leave the UK, left on the 3 June. The poor weather experienced this spring might mean our birds leave a little later this year.

It's also looking increasingly unlikely that we will hear from Kasper's tag again. Take a look at the blogs here.
