We have been informed that the Inside Out SW Programme this coming Monday 2nd Sep will show the tagging of the Dartmoor Cuckoos early in the season. The narration is by Nick Baker and you will also recognise several Devon Bird members who were the key players in this event, Naomi, who also works for the DNP and Dr Malcolm Burgess of Exeter University, who arranged the project with the BTO. As you know both Devon Birds and DNPA are joint partners for the Dartmoor Cuckoo project in the nationally run BTO scheme. John Walters and Charles Tyler, Devon Bird members and wildlife photographers, were also present at the filming.
We understand the programme will also investigate the thousands of sea birds that died off the Devon and Cornwall coast earlier this year.
