Cuckoos at Challacombe

I spent the day listening for Cuckoos at Challacombe and heard at least 2 different birds. On my drive back up during the afternoon I had a very fortunate encounter with a male sat on the low wall and then it flew up in to a roadside tree, I managed a record shot before it zoomed away again and then perched on the stone wall in the distance  My second Cuckoo sighting of the year but my first photographs.  Great to see one again.

(Just  record shots not good quite enough for the Gallery).
