Victor still in Gabon - 11 Dec 2018
Victor seems settled in the rainforest in central eastern Gabon. He has moved 19km (12 miles) south within the forest and is now quite close to Robinson, one of our other tagged Cuckoos. It might be that this is his winter site, although in the 2016 he wintered in Angola and in 2017, Gabon. He is currently midway between these two areas.
Victor settled in Gabon - 19 Nov 2018
Since arriving in Gabon on 19 October Victor seems pretty settled. He is still in an area of dense forest close to his arrival point.
Victor has moved south - 19 Oct 2018
During the last couple of weeks, Victor has moved south out of Cameroon and into Gabon. He is currently to the northwest of the Teke plateau and close to three of our other tagged Cuckoos, Bowie, Knepp and Robinson, in an area of very dense forest.
Victor heads east - 27 Sep 2018
During the last couple of weeks Victor has been making his way east towards the Congo. He is currently in southern Cameroon and around 500km (342 miles) from the northern edge of the Teke plateau.
Victor still staging in Burkina Faso - 23 Aug 2018
Victor is still at his stopover site in Burkina Faso. In 2016 he moved east from here on 31 August and in 2017 on 14 August, he could make his move east any day now. His next staging location is close to the Kainji Reservoir in western Nigeria, another 900km (580 miles) to the east of his current location.
