The second of the day!
I hardly ever hear a cuckoo nowadays at home let alone see one but this day I had two different species.

This one gave us a bit of a run-around in the middle of the swamp, till eventually we tracked him down and got him settle for a couple of minutes.

A Shining Bronze Cuckoo! And a new one for my list of course.

A beauty of a detailed close up, pose, lighting and capture Delia, many tfs and a fine set today.
Congratulations on yet another lifer Delia! How nice to get this to complement the Horsefield's. A fine shot, well done.
So many lifers for you and this is one stunning closeup of this Cuckoo D!

A terrific record image of your lifer girl!
Superb capture of this gorgeous Cuckoo Delia, congratulations. Rutland Water opens on the 22nd June good news at last. Tfs.
Got him to settle you gave me a laugh on that one. I know what you mean so many nice photos that slip away from us. Love the green tint. This is a fancy looker. Great work, sweets.
