Henry's movements

08 Jul 2024 - Henry heads into France

Since our last update, Henry has left West Sussex and flown a distance of 300 km (186 miles), taking him to the Eure-et-Loir department in northern France, approximately 65 km (40 miles) to the south-west of Paris.

03 Jul 2024 - Henry checks in for flight south

Henry left the Montrose area rather swiftly, and headed straight down into north-east England. From here he continued on to West Sussex, in a journey covering around 680 km (422 miles).   

He is currently just 8 km (5 miles) west of London Gatwick Airport.

01 Jul 2024 - Henry the first...

The first of our 2024-tagged Scottish Cuckoos has made a move!

Henry has left his summer Highland residency in Ross and Cromarty, and has flown over 200 km (124 miles) south-east to the North Sea coast.

Currently just north of Montrose, it will be interesting to see where he heads from here – will he follow the coastline down through Edinburgh and into the Borders or will he head due south over open water, past the outer Firth of Forth, into north-east England?
