Young Cuckoo

By Ted447
This young cuckoo was found in Reed Warblers nest by the ringers who operate at Mere Sands Wood and I was lucky enough to be with them when they put a ring on this one, they had to be very careful placing it back in the nest, we also had another one hatch in another part of the reserve.
