Saw a Cuckoo in Devon today, but only just! Took the road NE out of North Molton and turned left at the top of the hill into the valley between Darlick Moors and N Molton Ridge. The male was taunting a few Meadow Pipits. Also there a pair and a singing male Whinchat and a rolling Raven.

While I was away, last week, Sue Bruce heard a Cuckoo calling at Wrafton, but was unable to see it.

There are 9 juvenile Canada Geese in the Velator reserve.
