Larry settled in the rainforest - 30 Nov 2018
Larry is still settled in the DRC, in the rainforest to the east of Lake Mai. He is in particularly dense rainforest and not moving very far between fixes. In 2015 he left the rainforest for his mid-winter site in Angola on 6 November. In 2016 and 2017 he did the same on 13 October and 12 November respectively. With this in mind he could move south and west any day.
Larry has popped-up - 14 Nov 2018
During the last few days we received a series of locations from Larry's tag that shows he is alive and well and is in the Congo rainforest just to the east of Lac Mai - Ndombe.
Larry has made it to Congo - 19 Oct 2018
Having reported on 27 September that Larry was settled in Chad we then received a single location from his tag on 30 September showing that he had moved and was in Congo, just to the north of the Teke plateau. We haven't heard from his tag since. Looking at some of the data we receive from the tag, we can see that he was alive when we last heard from him but that the battery charge was very low. We hope that it is just a case of him being underneath the canopy of the forest and that the solar panel on the tag isn't getting much sunlight. Fingers crossed, he will 'pop-up' once the battery gets a better charge.
Larry still settled in Chad - 27 Sep 2018
Larry has been settled in his post-desert stopover site for two months. In 2016 he moved south into the Congo basin on 29 Sept. However, in 2017 he didn't leave until 9 November. It will be interesting to see what he does this year.
Larry still in Chad - 23 Aug 2018
Larry is currently the most easterly of our tagged Cuckoos. Since crossing the desert at the end of July he has been settled in an area of forest in southern Chad.
