Cuckoo to land at last

By Lillian  
An unexpected trip to the cuckoo today..
waited over three hours for him to turn up
BUT well worth the wait to get images like these

Also lots of other small birds to keep you occupied

Mike and I also keeping up with the grebes and their chicks..
3 hatched and two eggs to go...that's only on the one nest..

Thank you for stopping by and keeping an eye on my images

A nice pose with the wings slightly open, and it being at an angle, rather than side on or head on. A top shot!
