May 2018 Cuckoo at Lakenheath (Cuculus canorus)

  • Gleb Berloff
A memory from last May, this sighting was both a tremendous triumph and extremely infuriating at the same time. Chasing cuckoos all over the reserve, I saw one approach and perch on a branch in front of me. I took this image. Then, as I moved to get a better angle it flew off! I'll know better for next time...
