20 Jul 2021 - Clive moves on to Spain

18 Jul 2021 - Clive makes his move
Cuckoo Clive has taken advantage of the fine weather and crossed the Channel. New updates received at 05:05 this morning (Sunday 18 July) showed that Clive had flown 437 km (271 miles) south-south west and was in the north western part of the Morbihan department of Brittany, between Cleguerec and Plouray.
17 Jun 2021 - Introducing Clive
Clive was caught during an early morning session during less than ideal conditions, with the wind blowing and forecast for it to increase to gale proportions in a few hours’ time. A Cuckoo soon came to investigate but flew away. Hopes were dashed but the tagging team kept their nets open and it wasn’t long before a Cuckoo flew towards the nets and straight in! Clive has remained at this site in Worcestershire since being tagged.
