CUCKOO delight

At last, I finally connected with COMMON CUCKOO. Chris Pontin heard one calling this morning (at 0750 hours) in the area of Hodd's Wood, Chesham, whilst this evening, Carmel and I enjoyed excellent views of the calling male south of Flaunden, in the hedgerows and scrub around the Wireless Station and north of the Observatory.

A pair of GREY WAGTAILS was also noted at McMinn's (and the returning pair of European Barn Swallows), whilst 3 WESTERN REED WARBLERS were on the western bank of Chesham Fishing Lakes. My COMMON SWIFT flock has now increased to 5 birds.
