First Cuckoo of spring

A cuckoo was calling close to the garden this morning. Numbers of Cuckoos are reported to be declining across the UK. It will be interesting to see if this bird is going to stick around or continue on a northwards journey. Another welcome migrant was a Nightingale was singing from a copse along Hornash Lane.

Like the new header - as you know we had our first Cuckoo on Risby on easter monday but yet to have one in Normanby. Text from Graeme today to report a Red Kite at Alkborough maybe the same one we had at Easter!
