An early call for the Cuckoo.

It was an early start to capture the tagging of Cuckoo's with the BTO ( British Trust for Ornithology ) at RAF Fylingdales last week. It's well known that during the last 25 years Cuckoo's have declined by almost 75 per cent, but why are they declining at such a rate ? Whilst the Cuckoo has been well studied during the breeding season here in the UK, once they head off on migration very little was known about the routes they take or where in Africa they spent the winter months. By using advanced 5g technology, satellites will track the birds, while RAF Fylingdales tracks the satellites.
