Cuckoo visit

A cuckoo visited our bird table today, quite a close encounter.  Didn't eat anything just stopped for a moment before taking off again.  Should they still be here at this time of year.  We live on the edge of Bodmin Moor.

    Are you absolutely positive of your ID?

  • Checked all that already as I was so surprised. It was the female.

    What a rare treat Gingertop.  I wonder why they call you Gingertop ? image

    Pansyface. Me neither.  No sense of direction what so ever.  Can't seem to grasp it. My daughter isn't a bit like it. Wonder why.  BUT, BUT.  I can REVERSE park anywhere.  If theres a gap big enough, I'll get it in, no probs.  Daughters the same.  Why is it men think women can't  reverse ?    When my oh used to drive, it was embarrassing he was so bad image.  Navigate you anywher, but reverse parking, no. 

    Hope he doesn't get to read this imageimage

    Well, I'm a woman and I'm brilliant at navigation - whereas my male OH has no sense of direction at all but has memorised the Tube map image

    Maybe it's a this year's young cuckoo from Northern Europe stopping over - it seems they usually do that in Eastern Europe, but this year has had some odd weather conditions which may have affected things.  This article is interesting http://www.mpg.de/7711203/cuckoo-migration

    I'd report it to the RSPB if I were you. image
