Flight time

Spring is on the way, or at least cuckoos are. The weather forecast here in Pembrokeshire is promising us a return to winter, but down in west Africa the BTO's radio-tagged cuckoos are beginning to head north once again.  


  1. Hello - It is wonderful that the migrating birds are on their way back. I've read that many swallows are in Spain and the Osprey are in France. One of the cuckoos is named after someone I know, so I've been particularly following this journey, but unfortunately it seems to have disappeared.

  2. Hi, it's good to know that they're on their way - but let's hope that they're not hurrying because it's more like winter than spring, isn't it.
