23 Jun 2022 - JD crosses into Spain
New updates received at around lunchtime today show that JD has crossed the Pyrenees and is now in northern Spain. He is in the Castejón Mountains in the Cinco Villas comarca, Aragon, Spain, approximately 30 km (19 mi) north of Zaragoza.
13 Jun 2022 - Introducing JD
JD was ringed at Cranwich in Norfolk, a site where BTO staff and volunteers try to monitor all the Reed warblers, JD's host species, so quite a few of his progeny will be ringed and monitored. We placed a net along the track, and after a short wait he came flying down the track and got caught in the net. On a CES ringing session on 11/06/2022 he was seen flying around the netting area calling to the female, so has been a regular at Cranwich since being tagged.We have targeted birds from this area to boost our sample of East Anglian birds. Cranwich Heath is approximately 10 miles north of BTO HQ at Thetford. JD and Joe will be the sixth and seventh Cuckoos to be tracked from this area, following Attenborough, Tennyson, Thomas, Sylvester and Stanley. These birds have typically taken the easterly route south to Africa. JD was named by his tag funder John Davis.
