Thread: Cuckoo

  1. #1

    Cuckoo

    I tried to film a cuckoo I was winding up by mimicking his call this evening but unfortunately, every time I stopped calling to pick up my phone, he or she would veer off.
    I eventually got a small clip

    I've been in the forest every day solid for the last two weeks, I've been hoping to hear the cuckoo but alas it may be a few weeks too early yet.

    I heard one on Monday which is three days later than when I usually hear one here in Berks

    If it was calling it's a "he".

    Your quite a bit further south than me, maybe a week or two before they arrive up here.
    It's not spring until I've heard the cuckoo

    Heard today in the Cotswolds. Been out in the garden every evening since Thursday and not heard until today, so just a arrived; it is the same (3rd) week of April as last year.

    Ah ha! There was a female too. I wondered if there was two and now I know for sure. First time I ever heard a female then.
    I'll check the other attempted clips and see if you can hear her.

    I did tonight from the same spot. I was trying to get a shot at a magpie and saw two swallows diving over the sheep field through the scope. First ones though.
