    on a much lighter note... we heard our first Cuckoo of the year today

    It's well late but today we heard the first Cuckoo didn't hear one at all last year around home that is yet a few years ago we had them in the garden . Nice to hear. Makes a change from the Peacocks calling and the parrots squawking. and not they're not ours.

    Heard the first cuckoo here (Doncaster) on the 27th of April. Heard the first Nightjar last night.

    Well it's cooler out here on the coast obviously even the Daffodils flower later . It seems that Cuckoos eat furry caterpillers so they can't be all bad. The Blackbirds and Thrush young are near full size we have found two dead by the conservatory where they try to fly through the glass .

    there has been a cuckoo on one of my permissions for at least 3 weeks id never seen one before but always herd them i saw my first one whilst digging a new flight pond the weekend before last they seem to be getting later every year which probably dosnt help as most young birds are fledged by now
