Heard several of these the other day down the Thames Estuary but never got to see one. Lovely capture, Sue.

A fabulous shot of this rare and extremely elusive bird Sue, the clear blue sky makes the perfect background. You should be chuffed to bits with this one

What a super capture, Sue.

We don't have any of these over here. The closest we have to cuckoos are the loutish drivers I seem to encounter everywhere.
