Robinson's position on
Robinson has moved west- 20 Feb 2019
Robinson has been on the northeastern edge of the Ivindo National Park for almost six weeks. However, he has now moved 165km (102 miles) north and west, and is currently in fairly dense rainforest close to the border with Equatorial Guinea.
Robinson still settled in Gabon- 07 Feb 2019
Robinson is still in the area of dense forest in Gabon that he arrived in a month ago. He is moving around a little but seems settled on the northeast boundary of the Ivindo National Park.
Robinson heads north- 03 Jan 2019
During the last few days of December Robinson moved north, 112km (70 miles). This could be the very beginning of his long flight back to the UK. He has a journey of around 7,000km (4,500 miles) from his current location back to his Sherwood Forest breeding site, via west Africa.
Robinson moves north- 20 Dec 2018
During the last week Robinson has moved north, flying 133km (83 miles) to the northern edge of the Ivindo National Park, Gabon. The habitat appears similar to that he has been in since arriving in Gabon. It seems too early for him to be making the first move north, so it will be interesting to see what he does during the next couple of weeks.
Robinson still settled- 11 Dec 2018
Locations received from Robinson's tag during the last few days show that he is still settled in the area of dense rainforest that he has been in for over a month. This may well prove to be his winter location. Robinson is one of four tagged Cuckoos currently in Gabon and, he is only 9km (6 miles) from Victor. Both are forest Cuckoos here in the UK, Victor was tagged in Thetford Forest and Robinson in Sherwood Forest.
