Amazing movement from Larry - 26 Jun 2018
On the evening of 20 June, Larry was still at his tagging site in the Forest of Bowland, Lancashire. On the evening of 22 June he was 1,554km (964 miles) south east of that location and in Slovenia. Having moved a little further south since, he is currenlty on the Croatian island of Cres. He stopped here in 2017, arriving on 22 June, this year he arrived there a day later. In 2017 he remained on the island until 17 July before moving to southern Italy.
Larry still in Bowland - 20 Jun 2018
Since arriving back in the UK on 8 May, Larry has remained faithful to his tagging site in the Forest of Bowland. With some of our Cuckoos now in France, Larry could leave any day now.
Larry returns - 09 May 2018
From west of Barcelona on the 30 April, Larry has flown 1390km (865 miles) to return to the Forest of Bowland, in north-east Lancashire by the early hours of 8 May.  He is now back in the area in which he was tagged and will be looking for female Cuckoos to breed with. 
Larry safely across - 26 Apr 2018
On 26 April Larry's tag transmitted signals indicating that he has safely completed his desert crossing. From Algeria on the 22 April, Larry covered a further 1520km (945 miles), crossing the ocean, to reach north-eastern Spain. He is north of Agramunt in Catalonia.
Larry crossing the desert - 24 Apr 2018
Larry is on his way! Signals  received on the 22 April show Larry in Algeria, mid-way through his desert crossing! He is the fourth of our tagged Cuckoo to cross the desert. Hopefully we will find out shortly if he has made it safely across.
