A bitterly cold North East wind was not an encouraging start to my early morning walk....but as I came out my front door, a Cuckoo was heard calling in the bushes by the Lagoon. I quickly tracked it down and made a cautious approach with camera at the ready.
|It was not easy to obtain a good view which wasn't obstructed by branches.|
|Typical pose with wings drooping...as they very often do.|
Now and again it would fly off and then I discovered there were not one, but two Cuckoos!

|Out of the many photos I took in 20 minutes this is probably the best, which I have put on Flickr but there is still room for much improvement. Lets hope they stay around and that the weather warms up....it was a cold job this morning!|
