I had the good fortune to go to Borrowdale in the Lake District last week on a training course and in the beautiful setting of that dale got great views of a Cuckoo, on a wall being attacked by smaller birds and flying close by. It was calling all morning long. It's great to record this as I know these birds are not as plentiful as they once were.
Closer to home we had Swifts over the village where I live two days earlier than last year, on 4 May when two birds were flying high. There are good numbers now but I can not get decent close shot so I got this one flying to the moon! I might try this again for a better composition.
