Where are Nicholas and Kidman?06 Sep 2017 Nicholas and Kidmans' tags both last sent transmissions from Italy in July. However nothing has been received since. It seems that the tags aren't charging so we do not know if they remain in Italy or have moved on. Peckham is still as far north as Belgium so it could be that Nicholas and Kidman have also yet to move further south. At this stage we have nothing to suggest that anything has happened to these Cuckoos and we hope to hear from them again.
