I actually heard my first cuckoo of the year from Ben Lui last weekend, but today I heard the call from home for the first time in 2017.
Also on the bird front, we still have two ducks visiting the pond which is unusual at this time of year although we generally only spot them in the web cam as they arrive late at night and leave early in the morning. Presumably they think the pond is a safe place to spend the night – not sure if they know about the otter?
I don’t have a cuckoo picture – but above is one of the wild strawberry flowers which are just coming out.
