Clock This

Those of you who have been following the ringing stats for LLNR for a while will know that in 2017, an impressive 5 cuckoos were ringed at LLNR which accounted for around 10% of all the fully grown cuckoos ringed in the UK that year. 

Since then, despite Kenny's best efforts, we have spectacularly failed to catch another one... until now...A handsome juvenile male stayed in the net long enough to be extracted and processed, ending the long running streak of bad luck. 

At least 3 individuals were present (probably more) and so the cuckoo quest continues...
