Victor hasn’t moved west yet - 14 Feb 2019

Victor is still settled in the gallery forest that he has been in for almost a month now. In 2017 he began his journey west on 9 March but he didn’t arrive at his current site until 14 February. It could be that we see him move west any day now.

Victor still in CAR - 07 Feb 2019
Victor has been settled in eastern Central African Republic for the last three weeks. He is moving around an area of wooded valleys and could make a move west any day now.
Victor leads the way - 18 Jan 2019
During the last couple of days Victor has headed north with a vengeance, completing a flight of 646km (401 miles). He is now in eastern Central African Republic and currently further north than any of our other tagged Cuckoos.
Victor clocks in - 03 Jan 2019
On 28 December we received a series of locations from Victor's tag that showed he is still alive, although the battery charge on his tag is very low. He is still in dense forest in central eastern Gabon. He is currently on the eastern edge of a band of thunderstorms and it is 30 degrees.
Victor out of touch - 21 Dec 2018
We haven't heard from Victor for a couple of weeks but looking at the last batch of data we received the battery level was low on his tag. He is in an area of dense forest and the solar panel on the tag is probably not seeing much sunlight. Fingers crossed it gets enough to send us more data soon.
