Lovely walk in Guestling Woods and heard my first Cuckoo.  The Bluebells are beautiful and this is my favourite place to walk at this time of year.

Thanks Mary, that’s not far away from Westfield parish! Has anyone heard a Cuckoo in Westfield yet?  I heard one near Heathfield on Friday (22/4), which had already been there for about a week I was told by the landowner!


PS The first of the 7 BTO tagged Cuckoos to arrive back in Britain had reached Devon on Thursday (21/4) and was back in Norfolk on Friday (22/4)!

    I heard one down here near the plough a couple of days ago.

    We heard a Cuckoo on Monday 9th of May calling from some large trees at the bottom of New Moorsite so there definitely seems to be one in the Moor area.
