Going quietly cuckoo

OK, I know I am prone to moments of nerdy obsession, but just check this out. 5 cuckoos from Norfolk being satellite tagged so that their daily movements can be followed as they migrate south.

Started in June, the British Trust for Ornithology is running a regular blog from each of the birds, who are now several thousand miles apart in sub-saharan Africa.

I've just realised there might a particular sense of resonance for me as I too was born in Norfolk and then spent 4 years living and working in Africa. Maybe I am reliving my previous life vicariously through the journeyings of Clement, Martin, Lyster, Kasper and Chris.

Now get back to work
