A Bit Cuckoo

       MARSTON VALE C P   BEDFORDSHIRE.  MAY 4th 2011




A couple of encounters from my recent visit.


A Whitethroat keeping a beady eye on me !




And two massively cropped images of a distant Cuckoo as it flew by.

Well done with the Cuckoo Trevor.

Never seen or heard a cuckoo, love the header though trev

Welcome Debbie and thanks for visiting my blog. :)

You should be able to hear the Cuckoo anywhere in the countryside now, before they migrate back to Africa in late July/August. But you'll have to be very lucky (as I was) to see one as they are very shy birds!

Nice shots of the 'Nettle Creeper' ... they seem to be everywhere I stroll at the moment.

I hope you and Keith have a sucessful day with the Nightingales. Cheers FAB.
