We haven’t heard from Cameron’s tag since early October and at the time we were hopeful that he would pop-up again. The battery level had been getting progressively lower during the last month that we have information for; however, the temperature data showed that he was alive. We have to conclude that Cameron’s tag has failed and that we won’t hear from him again.

Fingers crossed for Cameron
Still no news from Cameron
Cameron is off the radar
Cameron still settled
Cameron settled in Nigeria
Cameron's tag is giving us lots of data that shows he is still settled to the north of the Lame Burra Game Reserve in northern central Nigeria. He has been here for just over twenty days, resting and refuelling after his desert crossing. He is currently 4,566km (2,837 miles) from his New Forest breeding territory, as the crow flies. He has at least another 1,600km (1,000 miles) to go before reaching the Congo basin, the area in which all of our tagged Cuckoos since the start of the project have spent the mid-winter months.
