Cuckoo Sightings

You did it, Devon Bird members and other members of the public have recorded well over 1000 Cuckoo sightings! By the end of the week (Sunday 21 June) the website received 1231 sightings! This is fantastic work by everyone who has made the effort to log their sightings. We are now close to doubling last year’s 728 sightings.  

Please keep recording all Cuckoos you hear and see around Devon until they make their way back to Africa later this season, and help us double last year’s count: our new target is 1456 sightings.

Juvenile Cuckoos could also be seen at this time of year, so if you come across any, please send us a detailed description in the website comment box. Any information on Cuckoo breeding success would be extremely valuable for our Devon records.
