Cuckoo calling

24/04/2018
I had been walking round RSPB Fairburn Ings and I was walking back to my car when I heard a cuckoo. This is the first one I had heard this year. I judged where the sound was coming from and walked back along the path. I looked in the general direction of the sound and saw something in a small tree. I looked through my binoculars and saw the cuckoo sitting there. I moved a little closer and took this picture. Made my morning. It was then that the rain started. The cuckoo flew away and I returned to my car - rather quickly.
