Knepp still in Gabon - 14 Feb 2019

Like several of our tagged Cuckoos, Knepp is in dense rainforest and, judging by the low battery charge on his tag is spending much of his time under the canopy. We last heard from his tag on 13 February and he was still settled to the north of Mwagne National Park, Gabon.

Knepp is on his way - 01 Feb 2019
A location received from Knepp's tag during the early evening of 30 January showed that he is on his way back. He has flown 800km (500 miles) from northwest Angola, over DRC and Congo into Gabon. He is currently in northeast Gabon in rainforest just to the southwest of Mwagne National Park.
Knepp has moved North - 18 Jan 2019
Knepp has begun his long journey back to the UK. During the last week or so, Knepp has headed north within Angola and is now 96km (59 miles) north of his mid-winter location. 
Knepp moves back - 03 Jan 2019
On the last day of 2018 Knepp moved back inland and is now in the location he moved south and west from a few weeks ago. He seems to have followed the rain north and east.
Knepp on the move - 17 Dec 2018

Over the weekend Knepp moved south and west towards the coast. He is now 16km (10 miles) from the coastal village of Ambriz. It looks like he has moved to the southern edge of the rains. It is currently 27 degrees and dry where he is.
