Cuckoo tracking

Flappy MacPherson left Mozambique on 19 April and is already in Pakistan having crossed the Arabian Sea yesterday. Today she continued her journey NE across the Thar Desert in India and has travelled nearly 4500km in 3.5 days. Another of their tagged cuckoos, Meng, is already in China.

This fascinating project has been sponsored by the China Bird Watching Society, the BTO, and BirdLife International amongst others.
