Returns policy


It feels a little like our summer has been and gone here in Pembrokeshire. This week has been grey and dull. So, it’s a little depressing to know that summer’s birds are already beginning to head south.
The BTO’s cuckoo tracking project is reporting on the progress of their radio tagged birds and apparently some have already crossed to Europe. The first to go was a bird they have called Sussex, which left England for France last week.
Since then more have gone and as of yesterday five of the 13 cuckoos had left the UK. They’ve gone to Belgium, France and Germany, while Sussex is now 100 miles or so from Rome. You can follow their progress on the BTO website here.
