Going Cuckoo

      The Taylor Lane juv Cuckoo, a great find by Daniel Branch.

                     Very mobile around the area and keeping at distance


                   These 4 shots very distant with 50x Bridge



With 3 calls this morning followed by 4 this afternoon reporting the Taylor Lane Cuckoo still in the area I thought it worth a dinner time dash for my 4th attempt at the bird.
On arrival with just 10 minutes to spare things looked grim but a bit of patience and standing watching suddenly got the bird flying over the road to a gate post. it was very mobile moving around the walls and fence posts but seemed quiet happy in amongst a Cuckoos favourite habitat, nettles.
A few photos and back to work with a smile on my face.

A visit to Ogden this evening was poor with just 39 BHGs, 3 Common gulls and 2 juv LBBs as well as a single Gt Crested Grebe whilst in the sky a few Swallows headed suoth.
A Green Woodpecker flew across the promenade disappearing into trees.
