During the last few weeks our Cuckoo team has been out fitting satellite tags to eight more Cuckoos. This will help to see how migration might differ between years. The team will also focus more closely on how the weather, in particular the Inter Tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) and its life giving, drought-busting rains, affects the timing of their migration. Follow them all as they head south.
