Karma close to Loch Duich13 Jun 2013
Karma was one of three cuckoos caught on the morning of 21 May at Inch na Croe, near Morwich (the others being 128303 and a female, which wasn't tagged). At least six cuckoos responded to our lures from around first light, and a further two birds had bounced from our nets! Karma has remained in the same glen since he was tagged, mostly of the north side towards Loch Duich, north and north-west of Morvich and the caravan park.
