Victor has crossed the desert - 11 Apr 2019
Victor is pretty much on the northern edge of the Sahara - he has a little way to go but has found the oasis town of Mansourah and its date plantations. In 2017 he arrived back in the UK on 12 May, and on 21 April in 2018, it will be interesting to see when he arrives back this year. He is currently 2,851km (1,771 miles) north and east of his last location in Ghana.
Victor moves back east - 04 Apr 2019
Victor has moved north and east and across the border into Ghana. He is currently in dense forest in the Mpameso Forest Reserve and 18km (11 miles) from the border with Ivory Coast.
Victor in Ivory Coast - 18 Mar 2019
Victor has crossed the border into Ivory Coast. He is now one of five satellite tagged Cuckoos in Ivory Coast. He is currently just to the east of the town of Diambarakrou and 179km (111 miles) south and west of his stopover in Ghana.
Victor is on his way - 11 Mar 2019

On 9 March we received a couple of locations that suggested that Victor was in Cameroon and just after 8am on 11 March we received a good quality location that proved this is the case. However, he isn’t in Cameroon, he is in eastern Ghana, close to the border with Ivory Coast. During the last few days he has flown almost 2,000km (1,250 miles). He is in fairly open forest close to the village of Broni. His map will update overnight.

Victor settled in the gallery forest - 25 Feb 2019

Victor is still in western CAR, moving around the gallery forest he has been in for the last five weeks. It will be interesting to see if he moves before the 9 March this year.
