I haven't heard the cuckoo yet.

Are they still on their way or moved away?

Living in Scotland, every year I did hear them. Any idea?

  • Hi Su
    I should say they are probably only just getting up that far North, I'm in Sheffield and haven't heard one yet so far.

  • Hi Su,     Here is a link to the Cuckoos that have been tagged and that BTO are tracking to give you an idea of whereabouts some of the cuckoo's are at the moment as they make their progress back to UK from Africa.

  • Thanks.
    What a quick response, much appreciated.
    Great link, thanks again.
  • I spent the whole of Friday out in the garden listening to one call. So they have reached the Channel Islands on their move through

  • At least one has been heard and seen (not by me) on my local patch in Berkshire. I read also that one has been heard at RSPB HQ at Sandy in Bedfordshire so they are on their way.

  • One was reported in Lancs over the holiday period that I know of. I never heard it when I went and looked - typical -but it sounds like they are just now beginning to arrive.
