Hennah in Africa and across the Sahara15 Jul 2015
We've received good signals from Hennah's tag showing that he is not only in Africa but has already completed his crossing of the Sahara Desert and is now in Chad. He is the second Cuckoo to arrive in Africa this summer. Low quality signals were received on 12 July around lunchtime showing him in northern Libya and since then he has travelled 1825km (1130 miles) across the desert.
