Over the weekend, five more of our tagged Cuckoos left the UK. East Anglian Cuckoos Walpole, Maji and Chris have moved off, as have Scottish Cuckoo BB, who had been in Suffolk, and Sherwood Cuckoo 134957. All of these, except Walpole, have journeyed south-east to Germany, while Walpole is currently in northern France close to the border with Belgium. These easterly movements may have been encouraged by the westerley airflows over the last few days.
This will be the fourth year we follow Chris, and the third year we follow BB, both of whom have left later this year.
