Peckham is on his way - 13 Jul 2017
Peckham's last location close to Nottingham was on 7 July, however, when we next heard from him on 9 July he had moved 149km (93 miles) in a south easterly direction and was close to Hoddesdon in Hertfordshire. Two days later Peckham's tag began transmitting again and he was on the east coast in Suffolk, close to Ipswich. The weather at the time was appalling with almost constant heavy rain. It might have been that Peckham was going to attempt to cross the North Sea but instead, probably as a consequence of the rain, he began moving up the Suffolk coast and by the early evening had settled close to the Norfolk border near Ringsfield. It would seem that the rain thwarted his exit from the UK and we will have to wait until we hear from him again to see if he has been able to continue on his journey south.
Peckham getting ready to leave? - 30 Jun 2017
Peckham has left his breeding grounds and as of the evening of 28 June was just south of Nottingham. Might he be the next to leave?  
Peckham in the Yorkshire Dales - 05 Jun 2017
Peckham is back in the Yorkshire Dales just to the west of Sedburgh, in the area that he was tagged in May 2015. He is currently spending most of his time close to Lily Mere.
Peckham back in the UK - 23 May 2017
Locations received from Peckham's tag on 21 May showed that he was back in the UK and that he was close to the Gloucestershire/Herefordshire border, between Aston Ingham and Little Gorsley. However, we received a series of poor locations on 22 May that showed he was on his way back to the Yorkshire Dales, and when we next hear from his tag we expect him to be back at his tagging location near Sedbergh.
Peckham moves north - 09 May 2017
Signals on May 7 show that Peckham had embarked on his desert crossing and was in the Sahara desert. When the tag switched off he hadn't yet completed the crossing. However, signals received in the last few hours show he has successfully reached Spain and completed his desert crossing. The map should update shortly to show him in the Sierra Morena Mountains.
