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

For a woman who'd had a heart attack 7 weeks ago, you did well chasing this one down hun.......That'll teach me for leaving the big lens in the car won't it Sad

Your persistence paid off GrinGrin

The eye, especially, is amazing in this!

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.
