At long last I got my Cuckoo Grin. Went down to the Somerset Levels today and amid glorious sunshine I finally tracked down my quarry. He had me running around quite a bit and getting close enough for a half decent shot wasn't easy, but I got there in the end.
Thanks to everyone for their kind comments on my recent uploads.
Hope you like this one too

Fantastic image......yes they are so hard to see let alone get near enough to get a decent shot of.

Had a pair of males competing by me the other day and got some shots but he was in the shade of a big tree so not very good.
