Thomas still in Congo - 19 Nov 2018
Since arriving in the southwestern corner of Congo a month ago, Thomas hasn't moved much and seems settled in an area of dense forest. He is sending lots of locations and moving around quite a lot, albeit within the forest close to his arrival point.
Thomas our most southerly Cuckoo - 19 Oct 2018
Since arriving in the Congo Basin Thomas has moved south and west into the rainforest proper. He is currently in southwest Congo in dense forest. As the crow flies, he is 6,222km (3,866 miles) from his East Anglian breeding site.
Thomas is in the Congo - 27 Sep 2018
Thomas has reached the Congo basin and is in rainforest to the north of the Teke plateau. He is the second of our tagged Cuckoos to reach the Congo this year. He is now 941km (585 miles) southeast of his stopover site in eastern Nigeria.
Thomas in eastern Nigeria - 13 Sep 2018
Thomas has moved close to the border with Cameroon. He is in the northern part of the Gashaka Gumti National Park in an area of savannah grassland.
Thomas didn't stay put - 31 Aug 2018
We expected Thomas to stage a little longer in Burkina Faso but he has surprised us all by moving a long way east, 1,337km (830 miles) to be precise. He is now in central Nigeria, around 60km (38 miles) south of the capital Abuja. He is currently under a band of thunderstorms and some fairly heavy rain.
