Tor has once again gone silent. The last signal received was on 12 March, just after he moved north to Central African Republic. Before that there was a silence of 3 months. It could be that the tag is not transmitting properly so we will have to wait and see whether he receive any further locations in the future.
Tracking Cuckoos to Africa... and back again
The 'Red Listed' Cuckoo is one of the UK's fastest declining migrants and, until recently, was one of which we knew least about once it left the UK.
In 2011 we attached satellite-tracking devices to Cuckoos from Norfolk to find out more about their important stop-over sites and wintering destinations on the way to and from Africa. Since then we have been able to expand the project thanks to support from funders and sponsors. Read more about the project and find out what we have learnt so far.
