BTO Cuckoos

Have you been following the migration of the Cuckoos?

A fascinating study that has already shown some interesting results from the first five to be tagged. I'm sure that more information will come out from the latest additions. At the time of writing, seven birds are already on the continent showing that they, at least males, leave the UK very early and only stay here a few weeks.

It is great to see that their story has been picked up by the media. The BBC have had articles on the website and there was a piece in the Nature Studies of last Thurdsday's Independent newspaper about them, and the paper's sponsoring of one of the Welsh birds.
