Cuthbert's movements

12 Jul 2024 - Cuthbert sets off!

Cuthbert has finally set off on his epic migration south!

Updates received from his tag this morning show that he has flown 334 km (208 miles) south-west. This journey has taken him from his breeding grounds in the Norfolk Broads, across the English Channel to France. He is now close to the town of Etretat in Normandy, famous for its amazing cliffs and rock formations.
