coo coo cachu!

Took a break from the norm this evening, and went around the MVCP/Rookery complex. This fine Cuckoo put on a wonderful display on the edge of the reedbed at the country park. Also Cetti's Warbler singing away, along with lots of the other commoner warblers. Unfortunately I didn't get a Gropper there, which was the real reason for going over. I did however find one reedling away distantly in Rookery.
Also in Rookery was a second-summer male Marsh Harrier - a nice surprise. Also a pair of Garganey still, and one or two Hobbies. (No Whiskered Terns on any water bodies either.)


  1. Nice one ! How hard are these guys to see like that in the open ?

  2. Hi Nick,

    Cuckoos are tricky to get close to, and are best photographed when they first arrive back in late April. I was just lucky with this one!
