Heard the cuckoo on 28th April as I was walking through fields approaching Cookhill from Inkberrow on the Worcestershire Warwickshire border. Called several times. Gave me great joy, I can only recall not hearing cuckoo in two years since my 1950s childhood., but then one head it continually all spring even though I was living just outside the Birmingham boundary in Shirley Solihull.
I have been taking photos for 60 years, yes I’m that old. Nature features prominently. The above courting great crested grebes were taken at Draycot Water, the heron was photographed at Rutland Water.
