East Anglian birds yet to move - 20 Jun 2014

Our East Anglian Cuckoos have yet to budge, with all seven birds remaining in the UK. In previous years Chris has left between 11-21 June, while last year Skinner left on 30 June and Derek on 17 July. It may be a while before we see any movement from these two birds but keep an eye on Chris over the weekend.  

With a flurry of Cuckoos leaving the UK, Ash looks to be the only tagged Cuckoo remaining in the most southern of our tagging locations. 

Maji tagged in Elveden Forest - 21 May 2014

BTO's Cuckoo tagging team were accompanied by Anglian Water's Mike Drew to catch and tag Maji - who despite bright skies, and other birds avoid the nets, managed to fly in twice before before being caught.
