Shipley Bridge, South Brent ~ Cuckoo

Lunch time visit to the moorland above Shipley Bridge car park and around the SWWA filtration plant.

Raven, 4+ Willow Warbler, Wren, 4 Swallow, Pied Wagtail, male Yellow Hammer, Coal Tit, my first Cuckoo of the year, initially heard calling from towards Hickley Plain it then flew over me and off towards Black Tor where it was heard calling a bit later. Near the car park a Green Woodpecker calling. 

At least five Buzzards soaring over the area.
