Cuckoo at Golf Club

Amazing close up sighting of Cuckoo close to the clubhouse and 18th green this morning.  Was amazed how Raptor like it was in flight, particularly female Sprawk. This Cuckoo was very brown in colour. RSPB website suggests either a young bird or a rufous female. The bird was happy to sit in tree and sing with golfers and myself within 30 yards of it.

Other sightings recently: good numbers of Willow Warblers, Blackcap, Song Thrush, Redpoll. Garden Warbler singing all day close to clubhouse. Whitethroat around 3rd tee.

    Kev, a cuckoo has been heard all morning here at Gorse Farm estate! You must’ve heard it? Still going again now this evening. Definitely a first round here for me.
