Karma on the move18 Jun 2013
During the late evening of the 13 June and the early hours of the 14 June, we received transmissions showing that Karma was moving east, over the Grampian mountains. By 7am on 14 June he was located about 27km (17 miles) west of Aberdeen. Further signals received on the 16 June showed that he continued east a little further and is now close to the town of Durris, no more than 16km (10 miles) from the east coast. Having become the first Cuckoo to begin his southward migration this year, the question is - where will he head to from here?
