A right shiner
We started wandering into the swamp on a board walk. Adrienne and I were studying something when Peter called us; he'd heard a Shining Bronze Cuckoo. So we shot over to the area it was coming from but he'd moved, so we moved. Then we saw him fly further round a bit of woodland on the edge of the marsh.

We rushed over there and he flew again but this time, fortunately, he only went a short distance and stayed there.

So two "bronze" cuckoos that morning!

Brilliant capture of this Cuckoo Delia, tfs. Osprey has got its first egg at Rutland Water.

Oh nice one Donald.... we've a race on then as our NC0 laid an egg on the 4th. That's the first time our Ospreys have laid eggs in the same week I think.

It'll be interesting to compare, won't it.
