BB has travelled south and is now in the Congo rainforest. He has moved over 840km (520 miles) from his last location in Chad and is now in the south-east of Cameroon. Despite being so much later than many of our other Cuckoos, he is in fact earlier than last year, when he moved to the rainforest on 9 December, albeit all the way down to Congo from Chad.
Tracking Cuckoos to Africa... and back again
We’ve lost over half the number of Cuckoos in the UK over the last 20 years.
