No further data have been received from Kasper's tag, however we have not given up hope. The last, partial, signal we received from him (11th April) showed a low charge on his tag. It is possible that, like Lyster before him, he is spending some time in Algeria foraging for food before attempting the Mediterranean crossing. His solar-powered tag would therefore not charge up if he is in the undergrowth. We hope that once he has moved on, and his tag has had a chance to charge, we will see Kasper pop up soon.
During the last couple of days Victor has headed north with a vengeance, completing a flight of 646km (401 miles). He is now in eastern Central African Republic and currently further north than any of our other tagged Cuckoos.
